In the tradition of Kubik Melbourne in 2011, 2012’s Where?House, The Residence in 2013 and 2014’s QVM, Melbourne Music Week is set to transform an unlikely space and immerse you with live music and art once more.
The location for the 2015 flagship venue, 150 years after the building first opened, will be the disused basement and adjoining rooms of the former Royal Women’s Hospital on Swanston Street. Throughout the week it will stage local and international headliners, art on show, a vivid daily lineup of events, and offer quality food and drink throughout this year's eight day program. It will also be MMW's first ever carbon neutral flagship venue.
The opening night of MMW will be held on Friday November 13, and will feature a completely Melbourne lineup of Gypsy & The Cat, The Harpoons and Dorsal Fins. Meanwhile, Swell, an evocative, multi-sensory and immersive soundscape journey through live music, art and design will also take over 12 of the Former Royal Women’s Hospital’s forgotten spaces, and will feature an array of secret one-off performances throughout the week.
Beat will be revealing the full MMW line-up announcement on Wednesday October 7.
