“After pressing pause on Happy Place in January due to the surge in Covid-19 cases in Melbourne, with the safety of our guests and staff top of mind, it’s now the right time to bring Happy Place back to Melburnians and we can’t wait to welcome guests back to Happy Place,” says Graham Kennedy, Head of Arts and Entertainment, Live Nation.

Visitors can be assured that Happy Place adheres to all the health and safety precautions and measures in line with the government’s advice for events.  We look forward to seeing many, many happy faces at Happy Place.”

The inspiration behind Happy Place came from its founder, veteran American entertainment manager and live event producer Jared Paul, whose client roster ranges from New Kids on the Block to Lea Michele and Sabrina Carpenter. Paul also produces tours for “Dancing with the Stars” and was behind the hit arena shows for “Glee.” On a mission to raise his three children surrounded by positivity and joy and at a time when he saw so many challenging and divisive events happening around the globe, he wanted Happy Place to provide an oasis for people of all ages and backgrounds to come together and embrace moments of happiness in their everyday lives.

The innovative experience has multiple rooms to explore that offer plenty of fun, laughter and most importantly, happiness.

Hundreds of thousands of guests visited Happy Place around the globe, with famous fans includingAdele, Kourtney Kardashian, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Kerry Washington, Olivia Wilde, Hilary Duff, Sarah Michelle Gellar, and Australian celebrities Samantha Jade, Ben Fordham, Richard Reid and Gyton Grantley, posing up a storm across the 20,000 square feet of happy.
