City Sounds | Live music, free weekly
City Sounds Gig Guide
Interviews and Features
City Sounds is Australia’s largest and longest-running free live music program. Every single week we turn ordinary urban spaces into music venues for artists to share their voices with the public. Every week expect to hear anything from jazz and funk to electro and indie ringing out from Queen Street Mall, Post Office Square, Reddacliff Place and other locations in the CBD. It’s like a boutique music festival that never ends – there’s always someone new to discover. Check out our Gig Guide page to see who is landing on our outdoor stages this week.
