An annual celebration of the people and the music of the City of Yarra, the sixth edition of Leaps and Bounds Music Festival presents a captivating jamboree of diverse Melbourne music talent.

Held over ten days, venues from across the area will be brought to life with more than 30 events. With a focus on promoting the next generation of talent, there's a gig to suit fans of pretty much every genre, from electronic to hip hop and jazz to queer and Indigenous music. Many of the events are free and all-ages, so everyone's welcome.

Leaps and Bounds' 2018 festival will take over four venues, including Cosmo's Midnight at The Corner, Glovv and Waterfall Person at The Pinnacle, rock queen Penny Ikinger at The Yarra Hotel, and The Gasometer's Go! series launches with Cash Savage and Blake Scott of The Peep Tempel.

Here held at Hares and Hyenas and The Old Bar respectively, while the annual Smith Street Dreaming celebrates Indigenous culture and history with MC Leila Gurruwiwi, Dave Arden and Band, Benny Walker, Birdz and Alice Skye, plus loads more.
