General Info

Saturday 19 to Saturday 26 August 2017

Brought to you by the City of Port Phillip and St Kilda Festival, Live N Local is a celebration of and for the City of Port Phillip local community and visitors. For the second year the Festival will warm up the last few days of winter and run August 19 until August 26.

Local venues, hidden gems and industry organisations open their doors to eight days of free live music performances and artist development opportunities.

The jam-packed program is curated from a call for entries process that is open to musicians living, working or studying in the City of Port Phillip. Once local only to venues in St Kilda, the program is proud to present events all over the City of Port Phillip.

Live N Local’s free Artist Development Program for both emerging and established musicians allows attendees to meet experts and gain further skills and knowledge.

The Right Track – a series of forums that roughly chart the making of a record – from songwriting to marketing and distribution; and

The Door’s Open – a showcase of local organisations that work with and for musicians. These education bodies, recording studios, music retail and hire businesses open their doors for free tours and workshops.
