Melbourne as a massive cultural city has a mountain of events you could attend. If you love live music, new sounds and the independent music scene, there are a range of venues to cater for all tastes.
The only one requirement is a heartfelt love of music!
One of the places where everybody can go to enjoy free live music is Bourke Street. In this popular boulevard, you can go shopping and enjoy different kinds of artists singing and playing. Especially on the corner between Bourke Street and Swanston Street, the stairs everyday are full of people listening to incredible artists.
It is a good spot to wait while the sunset comes.
Next to the St Kilda beach there is a bar called Greasy Joe’s. The plan is easy: take your friends to the beach, enjoy the sand and admire the sunset. At this time the bar come alive with live unplugged music. You can listen to covers of popular hits.
Time to chill out and get some drinks!
New artists always have an open the stage at Federation Square. In the weekly outdoor concerts, you can go with your mates and sit in front of the stage.
Thursday afternoons are the best time to catch up and listen to spectacular bands, immersing yourself in a sonic feast of live music.
Of course! I cannot leave out of this list one of the spots where you can learn about Latin sounds and dance at the same time. Located on Little Bourke Street, Vamos is a spot where every Friday bands plays classic salsa or rhythm’s from South America.
The experience you have here will capture your heart. Although it is not free, I believe it is worth investing in.
