Proudly presented by the City of Port Phillip, Live N Local is a FREE winter celebration of music, serving up a selection of live music, workshops and performances in an array of exciting and unique venues across eight glorious days.

The jam-packed program is curated from a call for entries process that is open to musicians living, working, gigging or studying in the City of Port Phillip. 

Live N Local’s FREE Artist Development Program for both emerging and established musicians allows attendees to meet experts and gain further skills and knowledge.

The Right Track – a series of forums that roughly chart the making of a record – from songwriting to marketing and distribution; and

The Door’s Open – a showcase of local organisations that work with and for musicians. These education bodies, recording studios, music retail and hire businesses open their doors for free tours and workshops.
