Spotlight on live contemporary music

Turn up the volume on live music, as ALWAYS LIVE makes global noise and livens up Victoria's major events calendar. The new state-wide celebration of local and international live music boasts an always-growing program of events. ALWAYS LIVE will shine a light on homegrown talent and draw sought-after international acts to Melbourne and Victoria. 

Catch intimate performances on iconic rooftops or join pulsating crowds at arena shows – there's a live experience to suit every music lover. Listen to the mellow sounds of Tash Sultana as she wows fans against spectacular sunsets at Ocean Sounds in Phillip Island. Gather your friends and travel across the state for a series of Hometown concerts, headlined by First Nations artists returning to country and supported by exceptional local talent. 

The Hometown concert series include the likes of multi-platinum selling singer and songwriter, Isaiah Firebrace at Girgarre Sound Shell near Echuca, and Alice Skye at Sawyer Park Sound Shell alongside the scenic Barengi Gadjin Wimmera River in Horsham. 

Transcend to new levels as Indie icon Cate Le Bon fills venues with art-pop brilliance across Victoria. Catch her in the big smoke at the Corner Hotel in Richmond or take a road trip to the beloved Theatre Royal in Castlemaine. Gaze upon the majestic Hanging Rock as you're hypnotised by the raw energy of Nick Cave And Warren Ellis when they open their Australian Carnage Tour with two special shows in Victoria's Macedon Ranges. Take flight with Texan psych-rock trio Khruangbin at Sidney Myer Music Bowl accompanied by Kamasi Washington and Mildlife, exclusive for ALWAYS LIVE.

Be part of the crowd as ALWAYS LIVE populates the state with memorable music experiences in iconic locations.
