Last month, Melbourne venue the Sidney Myer Music Bowl announced it would be hosting a slew of gigs in early 2021 as part of a concert series dubbed Live at the Bowl.
Now, the already-stacked lineup has grown with a host of new additions to the series’ program. Archie Roach will perform his only Melbourne show behind 2019 album Tell Me Why on Friday, 19th February at the venue, with Paul Grabowsky and Sally Dastey also set to appear.
In collaboration with Melbourne Music Week – Extended, the Bowl will also present Happy Mondays, a residency series curated by beloved Melbourne live music venues like the Tote and the Curtin. Across four Mondays in February, you’ll be able to catch performances from local legends like the Meanies, Cash Savage & the Last Drinks, Sui Zhen and more.
Plus, a drug and alcohol-free, all-ages gig featuring Skegss, Ruby Fields, King Stingray and the Vovos is set to take place on Saturday, 20th February in partnership with youth music organisation The Push.
Check out all the new additions to the series below, and head to the Live at the Bowl website here for all the info and to score yourself tickets.
