Music week - so big it goes for 9 days
Melbourne Music Week returns from 17 November to 25 November 2017.

With 250 artists, 105 events and 40 locations spread across Melbourne, it promises to be 9 days of brilliant entertainment with something to suit everyone.

Last year MMW used as The Hub the State Library. How do you top that? Well they have once again upped the ante announcing that St Paul's Cathedral will be the home to this year's festival.

St Paul's Cathedral

Pull up a pew and get ready for a celebration of Melbourne's music scene. St Paul's Cathedral standing at the very heart of the City, across from Flinders Street Station, was designed by William Butterfield and boasts a rich history with the first stone being laid in 1880.

St Paul's Cathedral

Usually a place of quiet contemplation and reflection, the gothic cathedral will play host to a German techno icon, a Montreal club veteran, a US folk hero and a whole bunch of local legends.

Meanwhile, in the carpark next-door, there will be a huge line-up of local and international acts. 'The Carpark' will be home to lunch performances, live sets and incredible gigs.

Check out the program here for details on all of the events being held at MMW Hub: St Paul's Cathedral. Please note that some of the performances are free and some are ticketed during these times.

Some of the headliners over the nine days of the festival include the densely layered vocal harmonies of Juliana Barwick, hip-hop and R&B from Sampa the Great and Fortunes, as well as Canadian Balearic-house producer and DJ Jacque Green. Local favourite Banoffee will be returning from her new home in LA on the back of some excellent new singles.

Why not check out the Live Music Safari? On Thursday 23 November, ten of the city's iconic music venues will open their doors and ditch the cover charge for a huge night of live music.

With a stack of free events being held, you'll be able to listen to some great performers every day during the festival.

There are also plenty of events suitable for all ages.

Apart from the MMW Hub at the Cathedral, other events will be held all around Melbourne including Parliament House, MPavilion, State Library Victoria, Melbourne Town Hall, Meat Market, Melbourne Recital Centre, Federation Square and the Melbourne Electronic Sound Studio.

With so much on, check out all the events here and plan your nights around your favourites.

MMW is proudly presented by City of Melbourne.
