Time Out says

Head back to the bowl this summer for a hot series of live music

Big things are happening at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl this summer, with Arts Centre Melbourne announcing the first acts in its revitalising Live at the Bowl series. From January 2021, dozens of Australia's best bands, solo artists and comedians will take to the huge outdoor stage (it's the largest of its kind in Australia) for socially distanced performances. 

During the Live at the Bowl season, audiences will be treated to more than 40 performances, artists and events, including Missy HigginsHannah Gadsby, Birds of TokyoSoju GangOcean AlleyNortheast Party HouseSampa the Great, Emma Donovan, Daryl BraithwaiteLime Cordiale and Zoë Coombs Marr

Sidney Myer will also host a number of one-day music festivals, something which locals have been bereft of since March. Beloved day party Piknic Électronik returns for not one, but two dates (and stars the likes of DJ Sunshine and Late Nite Tuff Guy) while Sun Cycle is also coming back for its sophomore iteration, featuring Mildlife and Wax'o Paradiso. Share the Spirit Indigenous music and cultural festival (which in the past has been held at Treasury Gardens) will also take to the Sidney Myer stage during Live at the Bowl. 

As we've reported previously, your return to the bowl will look a little different. Tickets are available in three categories: private decks (for groups of four to six people), stall tables (for groups of two to four) and balcony seats (for groups of one of two). Food and drink will be available but will be cashless and contactless, only one person from each deck or table can go to the bar, and guests will be able to order snacks from food trucks via the Hungry Hungry app.

Tickets for Live at the Bowl are available from midday on Wednesday, December 16 and further performances will be announced in the coming weeks. Visit the website for the full program.
