The Sound Society at South Bank Parklands
Kick-start the weekend by catching free live tunes in the park every Friday and Saturday.

After the work-week marathon, holing up at home all weekend can be mighty tempting, especially in 2020. And while technology has gifted us with the amazing ability to get both food and entertainment without changing out of our PJs, you might still feel like sunshine and socialising. So, swap the hermit life for an outside hangout.
The Sound Society is an initiative that fills Roma Street Parkland with music once a month — and, now, it's hosting biweekly jam sessions in South Bank Parklands. If ending the work week with smooth live tunes or kicking back in the sun on a Saturday is your style, meander down to River Quay from 4–6pm on Fridays and Rainforest Green from 2–5pm on Saturdays — picnic blanket in hand. Of course, you can BYO picnic and, if you're heading to the River Quay gig, you can even BYO booze.
The lineup is eclectic, showcasing different local artists covering genres from jazz to acoustic pop.
The Sound Society takes place at South Bank Parklands' River Quay from 4–6pm on Fridays and Rainforest Green from 2–5pm on Saturdays.
