Live N Local reveals 2017 lineup


Live N Local is back for another year, spanning eight days and multiple venues with a slew of live music and special events on offer. 

Part of the festival will see a Beat Magazine-curated lineup featuring Sid O’Neill (The Vasco Era) sharing the stage with Las Bastard and Emillee South for a special show at Starward Distillery, bringing together top-notch tunes and whiskey alongside a selection of food trucks. 

The Senegambian Jazz Band will host a southside album launch at Memo Music Hall, while the St Kilda Jazz Herritage Project launch will commemorate the area’s storied ties to improvised music. 

The closing night party will showcase Jess Ribeiro, Thando, Joshua Tavares, Simon Burke and Xani Kolac, while Sacred Heart Catholic Church will host a celebration with their Women of Song showcase. 

Capping it off comes an extensive artist development program with numerous opportunities to learn and network for musicians ready to take the next step in their careers.
