Sunset Sounds 2020
A series of free outdoors gigs held in parks across Melbourne. BYO picnic.
If come January you find yourself stuck in the city battling the inevitable post-holiday blues, consider Sunset Sounds one of your summertime saviours. Launching its sixth season, the free concert series will once again feature a program of gigs hosted at parks across the Stonnington area throughout the month.
Returning for three Sunday sessions from January 5, Sunset Sounds is set to dish up a cracking mix of up-and-coming homegrown musical talent, best enjoyed from the comfort of your picnic blanket.
Prahran's Victoria Gardens helps to kick-start the 2020 season in style, with hip hop group Billy Davis & The Good Lords supported by jazz singer Tanya George. Genre-blending band The Northern Folk headline the January 12 edition, gracing Central Park in Malvern East with help from Rach Brennan & The Pines. And the fun wraps up on January 19 at Malvern Gardens, as soulful guitarist Laneous takes to the stage, followed by Indigenous singer Emma Donovan.
Each concert runs from 5-8pm, with a lineup of food trucks on hand serving cheese platters, gelato, fish and chips, and more — just in case you forget your picnic basket — to back the openair tunes and barefoot dance moves.
