Fed Square has announced the return of Fed Live, a free music festival in the heart of Melbourne, featuring some of Australia's biggest acts.
Vera Blue, Masked Wolf, Gretta Ray, King Stingray and Big Twisty & The Funknasty will all play across three gigs for Fed Live. The first, featuring Arnhem Land surf-rock sensations King Stingray, will kick off on January 21 against Melbourne’s stunning city skyline.
The 2022 ARIA Breakthrough Artist Award winners will be supported by surf-pop band The Moving Stills, alt-country singer-songwriter Babitha and Andrew Gurruwiwi Band – a high-energy, seven-piece funk and reggae band also from Arnhem Land.

On Saturday February 18, Vera Blue headlines with support from acclaimed indie-pop songstress Gretta Ray, multi-instrumentalist hitmaker Vetta Borne and rising pop/R&B artist PRICIE. Blue is one of the biggest pop acts in Australia, boasting over a million monthly listeners on Spotify, so the chance to see her headline such an exciting lineup for free is a chance not to be missed.
Then on Friday March 24, perhaps the biggest drawcard of them all – Sydney rapper Masked Wolf. Active since 2018, Wolf shot to international superstardom last year with Astronaut In The Ocean. That track has seen him rack up 2.9 billion streams globally, making him one of the highest-streamed Australian artists of all time. He’ll be supported by Big Twisty & The Funknasty, Agung Mango, Pookie and Kootsie Don, and given the drawpower of this hip hop lineup, expect a massive party atmosphere in the centre of Melbourne.
