Music Cities Gig Guide

16 Apr 2018

Off the back of the fantastic Melbourne Live Music Census 2017 results released last week, we have another huge week in Melbourne music coming up. The Music Cities Convention is happening this week and there will be hundreds of international delegates converging in Melbourne to discuss what makes a music city. 
To help them maximise their fun in Melbourne, we've compiled a gig guide of the best shows happening in town this week from Tuesday through to Saturday.

What a week!
