2021 Sounds Better Together
This new gig series will grace stages across the state this January.
2020 might have been a little bit light on live tunes, but a brand-new concert series is here to help you jump right back in the deep end. Visit Victoria has joined forces with Mushroom Group to deliver a jam-packed week-long gig program, dubbed 2021 Sounds Better Together.
From Saturday, January 23–Saturday, January 30, the COVID-safe series will see a lineup of top local talent gracing stages right across the state, re-energising our legendary live music scene. You can catch the likes of Tones and I, Missy Higgins and Didirri as they descend on Mt Duneed Estate on January 23; groove to Jimmy Barnes and the Teskey Brothers at the Yarra Valley's Rochford Wines on the same date; and enjoy sets from Alex Lahey and Scott Darlow at the Esplanade Hotel on January 25.
Other gigs include Ross Wilson and Fergus James at the Theatre Royale in Castlemaine on January 27, The Living End and Bakers Eddy at The Forum on the same date, ad Didirri and Mia Wray at The Whalers Hotel in Warrnambool on January 28.
And of course, you won't want to miss out on the huge January 30 finale concert at Mallacoota Oval, featuring Daryl Braithwaite, James Reyne and sister duo Vika & Linda.
Tickets are on sale now, and all 2021 Sounds Better Together gigs will have reduced capacity, with ticketing allowing for proper social distancing — plus extensive cleaning procedures, hand sanitiser stations and dedicated COVID-Safe officers.
