Play winter out.

As winter draws to a close, head southside to ring in spring with an eight-day celebration of music throughout the City of Port Phillip from 25 August—1 September 2018.

Featuring local icons along with emerging talent, performing in established live music venues and unexpected destinations—don’t miss this opportunity to explore the talented landscape of Melbourne’s live music scene south of the Yarra.

Now in its third year as a stand-alone winter event, Live N Local features an exciting array of acts across venues ranging from Elwood Lounge to the South Melbourne Market. This year’s highlights include the Festival Opening Party at Middle Park Bowling Club, Kutcha Edwards and Band at the Memo Music Hall, and UnderSCORE, a 21-piece orchestral performance of Australian video game music scores accompanied by gameplay projections live at the Alex Theatre.
