Whole Loddon Love: The program bringing live music back to the Loddon River

Words by Staff Writer

Music Victoria-supported Whole Loddon Love is bringing live music back to pubs and halls in flood-affected areas along the Loddon River this October.

The series of live music events on beautiful Dja Dja Wurrung & Barapa Barapa Country are supporting venues, musicians, event producers and crew, draw heavily from people with live music experience who reside and work in flood-affected areas, and will showcase regionally-based musicians.

The shows are free for locals, super-affordable for those travelling from outside the Loddon Valley and feature live music from a minimum of three acts each night, including artists from the local community. Money raised at the events will be donated to local organisations chosen by the local community, to help support flood recovery.

The artists performing at Whole Loddon Love hold Regional Victoria close to their heart, and are all excited to be hitting up country pubs and community halls in support of the locals and each other, bringing not only a joyful and rollicking good time, but bringing together communities and acknowledging the tough times they have been through.
