Live Music Safari

It wouldn’t be MMW without the evening of free gigs and dance parties across the city

Live Music Safari is the peak of Melbourne Music Week's party vibes. Some of the most talked about musicians perform across sixteen Melbourne venues - unticketed, and free of charge. 

Music fans swarm the streets of Melbourne's CBD, moving from venue to venue to keep the party going on late into the night. The atmosphere is electric. You really feel as though you are at the center of something vibrant and explosive.

Live Music Safari presents free gigs and dance parties to suit any taste. Here are some of our highlights:

Baro, Milwaukee Banks and ESESE at 1000 £ Bend
Local hip-hop at its best. The team behind St Jerome's Laneway Festival are putting on one hell of a show at one of Melbourne's most underated venues. 

Pearls, Loose Tooth and DJ Emoceans at The Toff in Town
Party starters and taste makers, I OH YOU, land at The Toff in Town to present a night of live music and hefty DJ sets. Loose Tooth deliver a set of sweet guitar pop, followed by Pearls and their rich wall of sound.

Black Milk, SAATSUMA and Yeo at Section 8 and Ferdydurke
Tattersall's Lane is known by many as the epicentre of Live Music Safari and this year, two of its beacons come together to deliver a heady dose of hip hop. Detroit rapper, Black Milk, arrives to offer a headline slot, while support comes from a line-up that could hold its own as a festival. 

Jarrow, Jess Riberio, O Pep! and Jim Lawrie at The Curtin
Carlton's live music stalwart, The Curtin, joins forces with independent label, Badly Dressed Records, to showcase some of Melbourne's finest alternative country and indie rock. In true Melbourne Music Week form, we can expect a live performance from a secret act in the front bar.
