“Thanks to funding from the state government, we’re able to present an incredible contemporary live music program which will appeal to music lovers and will be a great night out right here in our neighbourhood,” said Mayor of Hobsons Bay, Councillor Peter Hemphill.

“Altona Theatre is one of the few purpose-built theatres in Melbourne’s west, and it will make for a very special and intimate experience. We can’t wait for our local community, and people from around Melbourne, to come and experience live music in the heart of our city.”

Minister for Creative Industries, Steve Dimopoulos MP says “with a brilliant line-up of Victoria’s most exciting and beloved musicians, Live from the Altona Theatre is not to be missed.”
