About Southside Live

Music and winter vibes

This winter, live music will take over the St Kilda Foreshore for the inaugural Southside Live, where all are welcome, and music is what matters. Presented by City of Port Phillip, Southside Live will treat audiences to a winter wonderland with a free curated program of Victorian music for everyone, taking place Friday 24 June – Sunday 3 July.

The all-ages program will feature jazz, soul, funk, orchestral, RnB, indie, rock and more, from many of Victoria’s much-loved musicians, including Mitch Tambo, Hiatus Kaiyote, Adalita, Briggs, The Black Sorrows, Emma Donovan & The Putbacks, Freeds and many more. Expect to see more than 20 bands and music acts to entertain crowds and an additional children’s program in the school holidays will feature Teeny Tiny Stevies and Bluey. The beach will come alive this winter as the hottest live music warms up the crowd.

With a stage set up on the south beach lawn looking out to the bay, audiences will be surrounded by a winter wonderland, with hot food, mulled wine, winter market stalls and displays of light and neon, for a unique experience to celebrate live music and St Kilda in winter.

Southside Live is made possible thanks to the Victorian Government’s On The Road Again program, an initiative that supports the return of live music events across Victoria.

Southside Live is an all-ages event and entry is free.
Location: South Beach Reserve, St Kilda

Southside Live is presented by the Victorian Government's On The Road Again initiative
