When the minds behind Melbourne Music Week select a venue as unique as St Paul's Cathedral as festival hub, you'd better believe they launch it with a bang. And indeed, the venue's MMW opening night is set to be quite the showstopper, pulling together a sparkling lineup of local and international acts on Friday, November 17.

Heading the bill is Brooklyn-based songstress Julianna Barwick, whose ethereal vocals promise to make pure magic with those soaring cathedral ceilings. She'll be joined by US folk icon Kath Bloom, Melbourne producer Andras Fox, Wilson Tanner of Eleventeen Eston and neo-classical doom act Divide and Dissolve.

Meanwhile, local producer Kirkis will debut his latest record with backing from the Melbourne Mass Gospel Choir, Two Steps On The Water will serve up a taste of their signature folk-punk sound and Krakatau's James Tom and Jack Doepel are set to deliver an unmissable performance featuring the cathedral's iconic T.C Lewis Pipe Organ.

Now that you know what you'll be doing on opening night, make sure you've locked in some more gigs throughout the nine-days of music. We've given you a rundown of the full lineup here.
