On the eve of St Kilda Festival 2024, Victoria’s first designated Live Music Precinct will come alive with the inaugural St Kilda Live Music Precinct Friday.
Whether it’s the surf guitar sounds of the Vibrajets at the Royal Melbourne Yacht Squadron, St Kilda’s take on Nashville country with Keep the Circle Unbroken with Row Jerry Crow at the National Theatre, or the high energy pirate punk of Burn in Hell at the St Kilda Bowls Club, there will be something for every music fan to enjoy at more than 20 venues between 5.30 pm and 1.00 am on Friday 16 February.
The famous music suburb’s legacy will be celebrated with St Kilda Underground Music Walking Tours with guest co-hosts Freddy Negro and Paul Stewart, and Jack Howard’s Epic Brass will celebrate classic St Kilda rock and punk songs of the 70s and 80s at Memo Music Hall. While some of St Kilda’s most exciting young bands, such as Better than Sex and Catholic Guilt rock Lost and the Vineyard.
Most shows will be free, and others cheap, thanks to City of Port Phillip’s Locals Playing Locals fund that was established to activate local bands in the precinct.
