For all the music lovers out there, it's going to get Live N Local this 19 to 26 August 2017. The City of Port Phillip is serving up a week of free live music and events for everyone to partake in and enjoy! Ranging from Special Events and Parties, live music Showcases, performances at markets with Market Sounds and music and food events at Music Bites, there's something for everyone. RSVPs are recommended for some events, so check out the Event Program HERE.

For those wanting to break into the industry, there's the free Artist Development Program where you'll meet experts and get the inside juice that'll only further your skills and knowledge. Stay updated via their website and Facebook page or Facebook Event Page.


The festivities kick off with a bang at Acland Plaza with a Pop-Up-Party where you can dig for new music at the Crate Digger Record Fair, watch live performances, try local eats and witness PBS DJ Emma Peel broadcast her Switched On program. Rhythm and blues, bossa nova, samba, soul-jazz and funk are not the only things that'll move you, there'll also be live performances by Horns of Leroy and The Rebelles from 11am to 4pm.

Horns of Leroy, Melbourne's favourite second-line New Orleans inspired brass band will also be at the South Melbourne Market from 9am.


Moving on to workshops, the SAE Live Music Recording Workshop with Tim Dalton, Audio Lecturer at SAE Creative Media Institute from 10am to 6pm in South Melbourne does need an RSVP for numbers, though free.

With 38 years experience as an audio engineer, record producer, tour manager, artist manager and A&R consultant and basically just about every role you can imagine in the international music industry, he is 'the man'. Having worked alongside artists like Paul McCartney, David Bowie, Simple Minds and a whole lot more, this is the workshop you'd want to be RSVP-ing now, before they run out of tickets.


Alongside the fun of performing, it's important for musicians to know the Muso's Guide for Living Lawfully. Again, an event in South Melbourne that requires an RSVP, for numbers, and it would be safe to say, all workshops require it, so be sure to check, and nott miss out on the opportunity of all these freebies.

Presented by Arts Law Centre of Australia, Senior Solicitor Suzanne Derry will present the top ten things every muso should know before they write, perform, produce and release their music. One-on-one legal appointments will be held at 12.30pm, 1pm, 1.30pm, 2pm and 2.30pm, so either email artslaw@artslaw.com.au or call (02) 9356 2566/1800 221 457. This is the second year running, City of Port Phillip organisations working with or for musicians have opened their doors to the public with free workshops, masterclasses on everything from audio engineering to live stage set ups, exporting and music business.
