Port Phillip's week-long music festival presents hot local talent
The City of Port Phillip’s winter music festival Live N Local is back for another year. This eight-day music festival presents a huge number of artists and bands across more than 20 venues in the City of Port Phillip, which runs from St Kilda to Port Melbourne. Take your pick from free and ticketed gigs, and explore Melbourne's thriving music scene.
One of the things that makes Live N Local is the variety of music on offer. You'd be hard pressed to find a genre of music not covered at the festival, with everything from Celtic music to rap. Live N Local is also hosting a free professional development program teaching aspiring musicians everything from audio engineering to DIY mobile phone music videos.
Highlights of the festival include the Beat at the Bowlo event taking place at Middle Park Bowling Club on Saturday, August 25. The free afternoon of music kicks off at 2pm with Hexdebt, Househats, Psychobabel, Alice Skye and Kill the Darling on the line-up. If you want to see who's up and coming in the music scene get yourself down to Pontoon on Saturday, September 1 for the Emerging Artist Showcase, featuring Tanya George, Daniel Elia, HVNCOQ and Sannia.
