celebrity Fashion’s most memeable ‘night of nights’: How to tune into the 2024 Met Gala in Australia. Cassandra Green

The Met Gala will take place on May 6, US Eastern Time. This means that in Australia it will happen on Tuesday, May 7, 2024. 

What time does the Met Gala start?

While entrance to the red carpet will begin as early as 5pm Eastern Time (7am AEST), the red carpet officially begins an hour later, at 8am AEST. 

See that broken down across Australia’s time zones here: 

  • NSW, Vic, Tas, ACT, Qld (AEST): Tuesday, May 7, 8am

  • SA, NT (ACST): Tuesday, May 7, 7:30am

  • WA (AWST): Tuesday, May 7, 6am

The red carpet coverage will go for around two hours. 

How to watch the Met Gala live in Australia?  

At this stage, it’s not clear if any of the major free-to-air networks will stream the Met Gala live to your TV. 

In the meantime, the easiest option is to go to Vogue.com, which will be live-streaming the event on its website. 

It will also be available to watch on Vogue’s social media accounts, including their YouTube channel. 

If you are the proud owner of a private VPN network, you may also tune into US network coverage, as it’s being streamed on Hulu+ in the United States.
