“St Kilda is known and loved for its live music so we’re delighted On the Road Again will help us stage Southside Live, a live music program to warm up the colder months,” sates City of Port Phillip Mayor Marcus Pearl.

“There will be plenty of exciting performances at Victoria’s most popular beach and we’re looking forward to music lovers staying on to enjoy St Kilda’s many attractions, shops, cafes, restaurants and bars.”

With a stage set up on the south beach lawn looking out to the bay, audiences will be surrounded by a winter wonderland, with hot food, mulled wine, winter market stalls and displays of light and neon, for a unique experience to celebrate live music and St Kilda in winter.
