Resonate brings eclectic live music programming to venues in Brunswick, Coburg and beyond
Moreland City Council’s brand new music program Resonate, presented as part of the Victorian Government’s On The Road Again initiative, brings eclectic live music programming to venues in Brunswick, Coburg and beyond from August ’til December.
With a focus on unique, local and family friendly events, music will resonate from unsuspecting corners of Melbourne’s Northern corridor, welcoming the warmer weather with over 80 different events, curated by some of the region’s most innovative producers.
Orchestrated by the team behind Moreland’s much loved Brunswick Music Festival, the four-month long music program pledges to uplift Coburg and Brunswick music venues including The Retreat, Rubix Warehouse, Stay Gold, and Coburg RSL and Woodlands Hotel enabling them to book bigger names and cheaper gigs throughout the Spring and into Summer.
Resonate also elevates upcoming event producers, assisting them to create imaginative new live music events locally. From monthly Family Jams at Brunswick Ballroom to intimate gigs at Nicholson St’s Feminista Vinyl plus an epic Operatives label launch at Howler, the program bristles with possibility.
Keep your eyes peeled for upcoming announcements that will include an outdoor family event at Coburg Lake, a show at the epic new Glenroy Library and heaps more!
