A rocking party will farewell a "riotously successful" Ballarat International Foto Biennale when Melbourne DJs Wax'o Paradiso take over the Ballarat Mining Exchange on Saturday night.
The 60-day foto biennale comes to an end on Sunday having attracted thousands of visitors to various locations across the city.
Wax'o Paradiso's Edd Fisher and Simon TK will bring their own distinctive vibe to the Mining Exchange on October 19.
"We are taking what we do in Melbourne and taking it to Ballarat for the night," Edd said.
Famous for their art inspired celebrations, Wax'o Paradiso are looking forward to bringing their unique style to Ballarat for its most famous artistic festival.
"One of the things we love about our job is we get to explore our other interests within music," Edd said.
"We absolutely relish at the opportunity to take what we do and put it in different contexts and it's a huge privilege to come and play the closing party of the Biennale."
He said Wax'o Paradiso was a family affair and they welcome contributors to their collective. Artist, Sprinkles also known as Sam Donaldson, makes their party visions reality and they work closely with photographers during their events.
It is an organism of creativity and the widespread contributions make the party unique.
"We are taking what we do in Melbourne and bringing it to Ballarat for the night. We are going to try and provide a fun atmosphere to see out the festival in style."

BIFB director Fiona Sweet said while Wax'o Paradiso was the climax of the final weekend, there were many other highlights not to be missed.
On Saturday the final foto film BeDevil, directed by Tracey Moffatt, will be introduced at the Regent Cinema by Natalie King who curated Moffatt's My Horizon exhibition at the 2017 Venice Biennale.
US photographer and artist Matt Lipps has travelled from the US to take part in a talk at the Ballarat Observatory where his work is part of the the To The Moon and Back exhibition.
For more than 10 years he has examined photographs of the moon taken from space and Earth to understand how the images have shaped our culture, and he will join exhibition curators Colleen Bolye and Rebecca Najdowski at 2pm on Saturday to discuss his work.
To mark Children's Week, the BIFB will also host a day of children's activities on Saturday at the Art Gallery of Ballarat. The activities will have a Chinese influence to tie in with the final weekend of the draw card Lui Bolin: Camouflage exhibition.
Ms Sweet urged visitors and locals to make the most of their final opportunity to visit one of the scores of exhibitions at 65 venues across the city.
Ms Sweet said it was important for the event to go out on a high with the Wax'O Paradiso party.
"It's pretty important - all our volunteers, all the artists will be there and the community are invited to come and celebrate its riotous success," she said.
Tickets to Wax'o Paradiso are available at ballaratfoto.org.
