One week. Over 50 artists. Non-stop music. For those about the rock, get on this.
Returning again to St Kilda this August, Live N Local showcases Melbourne’s diverse and incredible music talent across local venues in St Kilda and the wider Port Philip community.
St Kilda is renowned for its eclectic music and pub scene, and Live N Local promises quality emerging and established artists, roving performers and outdoor activities in all the usual haunts PLUS a few unexpected locations, which the organisers are keeping under wraps for now. (Check their website for updates). Full program is expected to be launched 19 July.
The best part about Live N Local? The gigs are free. So if you are looking for something to do at the tail end of this Winter, grab your mates and head over to St Kilda for some fab tunes from some names you know and some names you may not. And whilst you are there, check out some of the nearby bars like Mavis Browns for a beverage for two.
No need to worry about driving either, St Kilda is well serviced by trams, take the number 96 from out the front of Rydges St Kilda on Fitzroy Street, straight into the city.
Live N Local also supports up and coming performers with a free Artist Development Program where musicians can meet industry experts and find out just what it takes to break into the business.
If you are looking to visit during this awesome event, why not make a mini-break out of it?! Rydges St Kilda (based right in the thick of things) has got a HOT Winter deal. Stay 1 night & get the next night FREE, OR, if you only want the 1 night, stay from $129 during the week incl free parking. Call the hotel directly for details or to book 1300 884 373. T&C’s apply
