Section 8, Melbourne's original shipping container bar, is celebrating Christmas with a proper knees-up, in the form of a free eight-day party. From December 18–25, the famed CBD beer garden will become celebration central, playing host to a huge lineup of 30 great musical acts.

The bar will open at 12pm on the weekend, with live music acts kicking off at 5pm on Thursday and Friday. Entry is free across the whole week, and gets you you front row seats to Aussie favourites like Kieren Lee, Armin Payne, Mrs Wallace, Elliot Demarco and Jesse I.

As well as live music, there'll be hoop shootouts and cocktails specials — and a portion of bar proceeds will go to Black Rainbow, a not-profit that works with LGBTQI+ Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youth.

The eight days of festivities wrap up on Christmas Day with Section 8's annual Orphan's Xmas Party. There'll be a free barbecue, ice-cold beers and beats right up until 11pm that night.
