Missed out on tickets to SITG? Or just can’t be bothered to battle the 18 hour drive up to Byron Bay? What ever your reason may be for missing the festival, you can still get a slice of the SITG action sans tent pegs, gumboots and over-priced beer.
This year's Melbourne Festival contemporary music programme, directed by Brett Sheehy, is set to explore themes of identity and place. Australian and international artists performing including Billy Bragg, Shellac, Paul Kelly, Lee Ranaldo and Thurston Moore.
