Overview

Get in on the big gigs and big names bringing it to Melbourne's stadiums, concert halls, band rooms and amphitheatres.

Major sports stadiums host line-ups year-round: Melbourne Park's Margaret Court Arena and Rod Laver Arena, AAMI Park, and even footy grounds Marvel Stadium and the MCG.

Jump around at stalwart music venue Festival Hall and keep an ear out for folk, country and indie acts at St Kilda's historic Palais Theatre and the CBD's Forum Theatre.

Look for outdoor and all-ages gigs and summer festivals at iconic Sidney Myer Music Bowl, in the Royal Botanic Gardens.

To catch big names in smaller venues, watch for local and international touring acts at dedicated pub band rooms the Northcote Social Club and the Corner, and ever-evolving CBD venue 170 Russell.

Plan ahead: touring acts often sell out quickly, with pre-sales making up the bulk. Watch for ticket release dates, and sign up with major ticketing outlets.
