A bastion of the local music scene that gives as many acts as possible a chance to perform – whether it’s your first gig ever or you’re a bigger artist looking to sell out a more intimate show. They’re small, but they pack a punch, you can get cosy in this small venue or hang out in their wood-panelled garden with heaters and umbrellas.
Live music takes place on the front stage. With standing room only, they’re up and close, intimate gigs.
Famous for the friendly staff and locals, if it’s your first time, or your hundredth visit, you’ll always be welcomed at Whole Lotta Love and feel right at home
Infamous for their Led Zeppelin murals – the rock legends take up the entire back wall watching over you as you enjoy your beer, while the stage backdrop is one of the most recognisable around.
Supporting local artists at all points of their career, the musicians perform on a stage that faces the small and intimate bar, making it the perfect place to get up close and personal with an up-and-coming act. They’re a Led Zeppelin themed bar, but they support a diverse range of genres, running everything from open mic nights and acoustic showcases, to brutal metal or groove laden blues. Come for the bands, stay for the vibes.
Now, after surviving a pandemic, state of emergency, lockdowns, development threats, and just the challenge of operating a live music venue in Melbourne, The Whole Crew are celebrating the last 11 years with 11 special gigs throughout July, and you are all invited to be part of it.
Rock out at Whole Lotta Love by heading to 524 Lygon Street, Brunswick East. They’re open from 4pm Tuesday to Sunday.
