- Sleepwear Fashion Show
- Prize Announcements: Golden Couch Winner, Sleep on the boundary lines winners, Event App- Scavenger Hunt,
- Mindfulness Meditation
- Hand Ball competition
- Hip Hop Yoga
- Facilitated panel discussion with young people with lived experience of homelessness and staff from Frontyard Youth Services

- DJ Unleashed set

About Sleep At The ‘G:
Over 1,800 participants and volunteers will spend the night at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), raising over $1.2 million to support young people experiencing homelessness in Victoria on May 16.
