This sounds tops! Anyone interested in the rich musical history of St Kilda will want to attend.
In the 1970s and ‘80s, St Kilda was the live music epicentre of Australia, spawning its own distinct sound. In this insightful panel, St Kilda music identities discuss what contributed to the historic and exciting era of music, and what today’s promoters and musicians can learn from the heyday.
As part of the St Kilda Festival Artist Development Series, Music Victoria brings you a free discussion on the past, present and future of the St Kilda music scene - 'Saints and Sinners – St Kilda’s musical history'.
