Family Raves for Famillies in Melbourne with Big Fish Little Fish
The following review is by Jen Gurney who attended Big Fish Little Fish at ACMI on 18 November 2018
Big Fish Little Fish
8pm on a Saturday night and I’m usually cuddled up on the sofa in my pajamas watching Netflix. My 3 year old fast asleep in bed and just taking a moment to take in the mayhem that the day had brought. The mayhem that only the parents of a young child would be able to understand. So when KidTown Melbourne asked if I'd like to attend a "Big Fish, Little Fish" Family Rave the teenager inside me jumped up and down with excitement. Dancing in a real club, to real music with a real DJ .. with my daughter. The “Mum” side of me had a few reservations; “What if the music is too loud?” “What if it’s too dark?” “What if it’s too hot?’
I needn't have worried.
We joined the line outside the ACMI with the other “would be" and “used to be" ravers. As entered, Miss 3 was handed a glow stick and we all entered the club down the dark staircase illuminated by neon lights and heard the music. I felt like I was being reunited with a very good old friend.
The music was at the perfect level to both dance to and have a conversation, with both the teenager and the mum in me very happy. A roped off area with mats and toys proved ideal for some chill out time (if needed). There where play tents, craft tables, face painting a colouring wall. The Big Fish Little Fish team really had thought of everything to keep younger ones amused.
Then I saw it. The main stage with the DJ at the centre blasting out tune after tune after tune…My feet started to twitch, the dance floor was calling me. Miss 3 however was already there giving it the beans. She was loving it. Busting out moves like Jagger. It was so much fun being able to share with my daughter a part of me that she had never seen before. I’m really not sure who had more fun. One thing I can say is that we are proud to be 2-4 hours party people.
