Walk down the famous bluestone laneway and admire the street art that has made the Melbourne urban art scene known across the globe. Take in the dizzying array of colours, characters and shapes created by local and international artists alike. Pick out everything from stencils and paste-ups to murals and installations. Take a wander on your own or join one of the popular walking tours to get some background on the artists and their work. Take a detour round into Rutledge Lane and explore the work lining the walls, windows and wheelie bins of this sister 'gallery'.

Once you've had your fill of the colour and mayhem of the street art, slow things down with a refreshing cocktail at Misty – a popular pre-gig drink spot for the Forum Theatre crowd. Alternatively, sit elbow-to-elbow with other hungry punters at Movida – one of the city's best tapas restaurants.
