Fresh off the back of holiday season, January is best enjoyed when it's packed full of extracurricular fun to extend those laidback vacation vibes just a little bit longer. And this summer, The District Docklands is the place to be for just that, when it dishes up a free program of music and entertainment for its District Live series.

Returning every Saturday from January 7–January 28, the festivities will feature free live gigs from a stack of big-name and emerging acts — Daddy Cool's Ross Wilson, Eurovision star Isaiah Firebrace and pop darling Montaigne included. The OG Red Wiggle aka Murray Cook will even be taking a spin on the DJ decks.

To enjoy in between the tunes, you'll find a rotation of food and drink pop-ups making an appearance throughout the series, featuring favourites like Urban Alley, Dal Zotto and Tarsier Gin. Plus, there's a program of additional activities to keep you further entertained — including pub trivia, a makers market, paint 'n sip sessions and even a silent disco held in a maze.
