MELBOURNE

MUSIC CITY Melbourne is the live music capital of Australia and boasts one of the most dynamic music scenes in the world. It has been the breeding ground for hometown heroes including AC/DC, Nick Cave, Kylie Minogue, Men at Work, The Divinyls, Crowded House, Jet, Airbourne, Paul Kelly, Temper Trap, Cut Copy, Gotye and Kimbra. You can catch a gig just about anywhere in Melbourne – from laneways to rooftops, bowls clubs, concert halls and pubs. For many of these venues, live music is its primary business, showcasing diverse, original music across rock, pop, roots, jazz, electronic and experimental spectrums. A recent report revealed that over 5.4 million people attended live music performances in 2009/2010 – that’s more action than the Australian Football League season. But how do all of these people find the best gigs at the best venues? That’s where Melbourne Music City comes in. While the city is built around a 19th century central grid of main streets, they are intersected by a labyrinth of laneways which house many of the city’s best bars, shops and venues. Music Victoria encourages you music enthusiasts to treat the guide like a treasure map and wander around this amazing city, pop into one of the many dedicated record stores, visit landmarks such as AC/DC Lane and check out the incredible local music and venues we have on offer. After the success of last year’s guide, Music Victoria, with help from Tourism Victoria and Melbourne City Council has published this second edition. It is also developing Smartphone and iPad application versions of the guide this year, which will soon be available as free downloads from the App Store and Google Play. We are also launching a new project, AirPlay, which will see some of our best musicians playing live at Melbourne Airport. We are very proud of our music scene, and now it’s easier than ever to find it. Enjoy!

Long before Bon Scott, Angus and Malcolm Young and a couple of bagpipers conquered Swanston Street on the back of a flatbed truck, music was a key part of what makes Melbourne great. Melbourne is proud of its crown as Australia’s music capital. With more live music venues than any other Australian city, artists and music lovers have plenty of choice when it comes to gigs, festivals, conferences and industry events celebrating genres ranging from rock, metal and electronica to traditional Indigenous music and folk. Music Victoria’s Melbourne Music City is a great and long-overdue guide for those in search of rare vinyl, on the lookout for a venue or upcoming festival, or trying to navigate their way around the vast and rich tapestry of music in Melbourne. This guide may be focused on Melbourne, but live music in Victoria is a huge asset for the whole state. Every week, Victorian venues host an average of 3,000 gigs and last year 5.4 million people attended live music performances at venues around Melbourne and across Victoria. All those gigs created jobs and economic activity for our state, as well as being a massive drawcard for tourists from around Australia and across the globe. You’ll find it easier to get to see the music you love with Melbourne Music City as your guide.

Ted Baillieu MLA (Premier and Minister for the Arts)

Melbourne has a richly deserved international reputation for the way we nurture and support our local music industry. On stages large and small, Melbourne musicians shape our city’s sounds. Last year as part of Melbourne Music Week more than 20,000 people saw 200 artists at 90 events. Most of these were local artists, with Victorians making up 75 per cent of artists performing at MMW. With all this talent around, it makes sense to publish a guide to help people easily find the best gigs at the best venues. Melbourne Music City is a welcome guide to Australia’s best live music scene.
