Night Lab: Tropic Like it's Hot

Friday 17 November 2023

Can you feel the change in the air? The hot winds, the spring rain, the unshakeable seasonal urge to throw on your best Hawaiian shirt and go party in the South Australian Museum at night?

The Museum is closing out 2023 with a localised monsoon season of art, science, and a deluge of adults-only fun as part of the Feast Festival 2023 program. After another huge year of sold-out events, the South Australian Museum’s hit after-dark series Night Lab will go out with a splash in November with a tropical-themed Spring finale.

Inspired by all things equatorial, Night Lab: Tropic Like It’s Hot promises to be a steamy, stylish and occasionally spicy evening of science, art and adults-only fun. Featuring floor talks, music, live performances, demonstrations and more, this top-to-bottom takeover of the Museum has become a cult classic on Adelaide’s calendar – and an inclusive “nightclub for nerds” where everyone is welcome.
