Melbourne music venues
Experience Melbourne's music scene at its vibrant and exhilarating best, up close and personal. From skinny-jeaned indie kids thrashing it out in a sweaty club to moustached gentleman pecking away on an old country number, the city caters for all tastes with only one prerequisite - a heartfelt love of music. Jazz fiends and punks, metal heads and dread heads, dub, hardcore, slowcore and grindcore, they all have their place in Australia's music capital.
