Award-winning Family Rave Big Fish Little Fish is family fun for the post-rave generation of parents. Helping parents be responsibly irresponsible 😉


We’ve only gone and booked Anthony Pappa to headline this extravaganza!!!! Described as “The DJs, DJ” Anthony Pappa truly is a master of his craft and one of the most respected and revered DJs on the international circuit for over 20 years! The combination of his genuine love for his art, his down to earth, lovable personality and his constant desire to push the musical boundaries at performances all around the world has made Anthony one of the most sought after DJs on the planet.

This rave we are inviting you to dress in the colourful, quirky worlds of the Circus and Carnival!!   (Fancy dress optional but highly encouraged!)

Who should come?

For families with younger children (8s and under) although older siblings are welcome. Adults are not admitted unless accompanied by a child. A max of 3 children per adult. If there are more than 4 adults per child in your group please email for pre-approval before buying tickets.


Tickets are non-refundable but can be transferred/sold on and if anybody with tickets finds they cannot attend a sold-out event please email and BFLF will attempt to put you in touch with people seeking to buy tickets. Each member of your group must have a ticket including pre-walking infants who are free (but ticketed).

Yep, it’s a rave 🙂

Please be aware that events are standing/dancing with limited seating, club lighting rigs (no strobes) are used and events are busy with around 5-600 people at each party – which helps create the rave ambience. Each event is stewarded and risk assessed in advance. Sound levels are decibel checked to be safe for even the smallest of ears.  Please note that Chasers has some stairs to access different rooms.


We may photograph or film small parts of the event and by entering you are giving your permission for these to be used for BFLF promotion purposes.

Prams and Changing

If you can manage it we suggest not bringing a pram. We recommend slings and carriers for comfort and for some heart to heart raving on the dance floor 🙂 We realise some people will need to bring prams and there is a Pram Park but prams are not allowed on the dance floor for safety reasons. Changing facilities will also be available.

Getting there

Chasers is on the 78 Tram route and approximately 10 minutes walk from South Yarra, Parahan and Hawkesburn Train Stations. There are a number of parking options although the area can be busy on weekends.  The Jam Factory is $7 weekend rate with 950 spaces and a 5 minute walk from the venue.
