Fed Square live is Ready to Rock, Pop and Roll
On Fridays from October 12 – December 21, some of Melbourne and Australia’s finest musical acts will grace the Fed Square stage and take audiences into the weekend for Fed Square Live.
From dream-pop and soul, to big band and rock’n’roll, there is something for all tastes in this free series of concerts in Fed Square.
Kicking off on Friday 12 October is one of Australia’s most prolific entertainers Roger Knox, a Murri Man who was this year inducted into the National Indigenous Music Awards (NIMAs) Hall of Fame. He’ll be joined by indie folk troubadour Fraser A Gorman and Melbourne’s favourite Americana songstress, Madeline Leman and The Desert Swells.
On October 19, the Victorian Music Department Office and Fed Square presents four acts to get Melburnian’s swooning and swaying into the warmer months. Melbourne based female duos The Merindas will get the party stared with their soulful, expressive sounds dedicated to their cultural heritage. This exciting line-up also includes Kuku Yalanji, Jirrbal and Badu Island songbird Kee’han; the powerhouse vocals of Bumpy, and Riverboy, the new project by Narayana from electronic duo Willowbeats.
As we move into November, psych-surf, dream pop and infectious melody will take to the stage with Hobsons Bay Coast Guard. Sonic-drive all girl band hailing from China Dream Can will join the bill alongside pop psychedelia goddess Amaya Laucirica on November 9; and dance-lovers won’t be disappointed with the funk-party band Lake Minnetonka and electro-soul dreamboat DRMNGNOW hitting the stage on November 30.
As the summer sun hits the city, Aussie indie-folk legends The Killjoys will celebrate their 30th Anniversary on December 7, followed by folk darling Leah Flanagan and the slamming sounds of Australia’s favourite sisters Stonefield.
The series concludes with indie-rock sensations Mod Con, Civic and The Living Eyes on December 14; and power pop-house Juliette Seizure & The Tremor Dolls, Loose Tooth and 60’s surf rock infused Baby Blue on December 21.
Fed Square Live is a free, all ages events. Each week there will be food trucks, bean bags and astroturf so music lovers can kick back secure a spot and let the good times roll!
