Back for its sixth year, Melbourne Music Week (MMW) was launched on October 7, announcing a jam-packed program, with over 100 events held across the city from November 13 – 20.
For eight days and nights, MMW will pry open basement doors, activate laneways, light up the silver screen and shake up the dance floor at some of Melbourne’s most iconic music venues.
Alongside an electric line-up of local and international acts, MMW’s 2015 program will also feature a range of industry events, exhibitions, film screenings, workshops, panel discussions and more.
The 2015 MMW flagship venue will be the disused basement and adjoining rooms of the Former Royal Women’s Hospital (Cnr of Swanston and Grattan streets, Carlton). Labyrinthine music event Swell will reinvent 12 of the venue’s forgotten rooms, with secret one-off performances that challenge the way punters experience live music.
The flagship venue will stage shows that feature artists Gypsy & The Cat, Monolake (Germany), Banoffee, Eric Duncan (USA) aka Dr Drunks, Public Opinion Six, PVT, Kenton Slash Demon (Denmark), The Harpoons, Cobblestone Jazz (Canada), DZ Deathrays and many more.
