There's all sorts of free music in Melbourne, year round. This Melbourne Music page will show you where to find some of the top places to visit.
There's free music at festivals, Federation Square, Sidney Myer Music Bowl, markets, churches and parks.
You'll find music ranging from indie, pop, classical, folk, swing, big band, jazz, rock, dance, african, aboriginal and probably other types I can't remember at the moment!
Our favorite has been Code One, the police band we first saw at an Australia Day event in our first year in Australia......
.......We went to another three events they played last year too. Great rock and pop music and suitable for all ages.....even my then 3 year old was wiggling her hips in time to the beat.
We've been to the Sidney Myer Music Bowl, lots of festivals - our second favourite band was a Queen tribute band!.......
.......probably helped by the fact my daughter, then aged two, surprised us with her dancing skills, showing off to the crowd!
The Melbourne Music Summer Series in Fitzroy Gardens is another music event we really like....We stumbled across this last year but it's now a fixture in the diary.
Recently in Abbotsford Suppermarket there was a really good salsa band that had people up boogieing.
