Live Music in Australia

Enjoy a beer or two with some live local tunes

Every iconic band has to start somewhere, so by catching a great gig by an up and coming Aussie band on your travels, you could be assisting in making music history. Live music in Australia is everywhere from busy pubs to the buskers in even busier train stations. Established from the original Australian genre of pub rock of the 1970’s, where performing live music amidst alcohol, sweat and sick made you worthy of a cheer or two in itself, live Australian music performances have come a long way and are a major form of entertainment for a Friday and Saturday night.
