Street Bands

Country Music Victoria

  • GPAC 50 Little Malop Street Geelong, VIC, 3220 Australia (map)

Victoria's street band project, an initiative from CMVic

One....Two....One, two, three, four!

Riffs and rhythm. Squeaks, shouts and smiles. Tunes blast out. The band moves as one (almost!) as they lead the parade. Or play on the street corner. Or as they rehearse together on a rainy Tuesday night in their local community hall. You know the feeling. Playing in a band, singing and making music with others is something special. Hearing the rhythm drift down the street always increases your heartbeat. And playing at a street band festival is simply thrilling!

Pop up performances every 30 mins. Meet you on the dance floor
