Melbourne Music Week First Announcement
Following the success of last year’s event, Melbourne Music Week returns in November with an even bigger lineup of acts and events.
Highlights of the program include a MMW exclusive show from Italian progressive rock band Goblin who will play the Melbourne Town Hall Grand Organ, Where?House, MMW’s mysterious flagship venue plus the return of the successful Label series, featuring Siberia Records show headlined by Kirin J Callinan, a Teengirl Fantasy and Collarbones show curated by Two Bright Lakes and Cutters Records, and Crayon Fields (in their first live performance since 2009) plus Twerps for Chapter Music.
Where?House will see an iconic Melbourne space transformed into a temporary cultural and multi-function hub, providing the flagship pop-up venue for Melbourne Music Week 2012. In the spirit of the days when the pursuit of electronic music culture in Melbourne resembled a seek and find mission, the actual location of the Where?House venue will not be announced until Friday November 16, the opening day of Melbourne Music Week. Melbourne-based creative producers Marksthespot and Melbourne Music Week have announced that three of the headline live electronic acts will be performing for the first time in Australia at Where?House, including San Francisco based PillowTalk, synth rock duo Housse de Racket and multi-genre electronic music producer and live performer Eskmo.
Featuring over 90 events including 50 concerts, Melbourne Music Week will run from Friday November 16 to Saturday November 24 at various venues around town.
More Melbourne Music Week acts, concerts and events will be announced on Wednesday September 19 when selected tickets go on sale. Full program details will be announced on Wednesday October 3. Check their website for more information.
