Summer sessions bring summer sounds to Port Phillip

By on November 23, 2022 0

After popular entertainment activations at three locations last summer, the outdoor fun will expand to seven locations across the city, with approximately 100 live music performances.

There’s something for everyone with live music and performances from Amos Roach, Charlie Needs Braces, Pal Mar, Ignite Bollywood Dance Company and many more.

Mayor Heather Cunsolo will kick off the Summer Sessions at 5pm on Saturday 3rd December at Acland Plaza, St Kilda.

The launch includes live music from Darren Clinch and Canisha CK, a dance performance by Mexbourne and a bubble-making workshop with Dr Hubble.

We are proud that First Nations artists represent over 50% of participating artists. While over 75% of summer session artists are local to Port Phillip, many are selected from the Council’s Live N Featured Local Artist Database.

Cr Cunsolo said the summer sessions give a boost to local musicians and artists while providing additional foot traffic for shopkeepers by activating public spaces with free entertainment.

“We are proud to bring back the summer sessions with free entertainment covering all of Port Phillip, from Elwood to Port Melbourne,” she said.

“Come for the free music and entertainment and stick around for a drink and a bite to eat at a nearby restaurant this summer.”

Programming runs from December to March with locations including Albert Park, South Melbourne, Ripponlea, Elwood, Acland Street (St Kilda), Fitzroy Street (St Kilda) and Port Melbourne.
