From the Birdman Rally, to performances and silent discos, this year's event is promising to have something for everyone.

"Melbourne is ready for Moomba magic," Lord Mayor Sally Capp said.

It's the first time in the festival's 69-year history it will be running an extra day.

Rob Mills and Rhonda Burchmore are this year's Moomba Festivalmonarchs, titles held last year by 9News newsreader Peter Hitchener and radio host Fifi Box.

"We are very happy to be here and to be sharing it with everybody," Capp said.

"(We are) excited for everyone who comes to the Moomba Festival, to share with them the music and make happy everyone."
