LIVE MUSIC IS THAT INDESCRIBABLE CONNECTION BETWEEN AN ARTIST, THE CROWD AND A MOMENT.

It’s food for the soul, and a vitally important part of our culture. The live music scene in Sydney has seen some amazing artists get their break and establish successful careers, but over the years the scene has taken a big hit. Venues have been closing across the city, and our culture has been irrevocably altered. So what does the live music scene in Sydney look like today, where do artists go to perform, or is the Sydney scene dead? We take a look at Sydney’s sound then and now.
