Time Out Melbourne

This event has finished

Every November the streets are alive with the sound of music

The annual city festival celebrating Melbourne music is back and this year it's bigger than ever, with 250 local and international artists appearing at 110 events over 40 locations. The first line-up announcement reveals: Tangerine Dream, Architecture in Helsinki, Cut Copy (DJ set), the Church, A Winged Victory For the Sullen, Dusky, Ten Walls (live), Allday, Total Giovanni, Black Cab and Andras & Oscar.

There are some totally unique and out-there events you won't experience again. Sign us up for Roller Jam, for starters. And then there are the guerilla gigs – like the Institute Presents... Lost Empire series – held in a power station, an office block and a factory.

Live Music Safari – the most popular night of recent years – is back once more on Thursday, November 20, with 14 venues opening their doors for a free night of local music, including the Hi-Fi and the Kelvin Club for the first time, as well as expanding to nearby laneways.

Traditionally, MMW is made up of gigs, showcases and talks around many Melbourne venues – some traditional, some pop-up. There's also the festival hub, which this year has been built at Queen Victoria Market.

Once again, Melbourne Music Week partners with the Face the Music industry conference.

Tickets are available from noon on Wednesday, October 8. Visit the website for the full program.
