Music festivals are also set to roar back to life, with Ocean Sounds in Phillip Island and Gaytimes Festival in Gembrook just a couple of the exciting attractions Victorians can enjoy this summer.

The 300 event total will include a 20-date youth music calendar of events to provide live music for younger audiences, giving Victoria’s passionate young music fans the chance to see their live performers up close.

Seven industry organisations are on board to deliver events and programs, including the Australian Festivals Association, Multicultural Arts Victoria, Songlines and youth music initiative The Push.

“With more than 300 incredible events and an awesome line-up of local artists, this summer offers plenty of reasons to take a music-fuelled roadtrip across Victoria,” Minister for Creative Industries Danny Pearson, said.

“On the Road Again is bringing performers back to local stages, supporting the live music industry, generating tourism and delivering economic benefits in towns and suburbs across the state.”
