With success in Europe and the US, multi-instrumentalist and producer Owen Rabbit brings his haunting beats back to his hometown of Melbourne.
Sweetly unique, charming and as down-to-earth as you can get, Melbourne girl Charlie Lane has been making music nearly as long as she could walk. Her lifelong passion shows with music that streams from her very soul – but not without a quirky twist that makes her as entertaining as she is memorable.

Fed Square Live wraps up a summer of free live music at the final night for the season!
On Thursday 16 February we welcome Ditto Music back to Fed Square Live, with two of the hottest local artists from the Ditto Music roster taking the stage, for this special end-of-season edition.
Meet Francesca Gonzales, a 22 year-old Melbourne native who brings a fusion of electronic soul, pop and R&B to the table. After years of playing in cult band Cousin Tony’s Brand New Firebird, this first taste of her solo project has been a long time in the making, but an obvious path given the personal nature of her songs. Gonzales crafts a sound that is both distinct and compelling, penning lyrics with a remarkable emotional depth.
As emotive, wild and framed by flowers as their legendary Mexican namesake, Frida is the very definition of dreamy. Buoyed by haunting harmonies, pop prowess and a percolating rhythm section, Frida’s melodic assault has captivated music lovers and makers alike.
Formed in 2013 by Melbourne based singer-songwriter Eilish Gilligan, and key members of the instrumental soul band The Cactus Channel (Darvid Thor, Henry Jenkins, Lewis Coleman and Hudson Whitlock), Frida’s spell has cast itself as far as Singapore’s annual Baybeats Festival, to Lorne’s Falls Festival, leaving hundreds in thrall to their melodic swell.
