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.

  • Live music is so important to our city and our culture. We love this paragraph from the recently released parliamentary inquiry report “..not having a vibrant music industry will cost us greatly and bring embarrassment to our beautiful global city. NSW should be the head and not the tail of all things music in Aus. To neglect the music industry any further is at our own peril!” ..Jess & Sara from Nitocris reflect on their experiences performing and seeing live gigs here. Don’t forget to grab your tix to our screening on Mon 19 at Dendy Newtown!
