Time to get the calendar out music lovers – live music is back in Queenscliff at the freshly minted Queenscliff Town Hall.
After announcing earlier this year that the beloved Queenscliff Music Festival would be postponed to November 2022, good news has been revealed for the seaside town and its travellers. A new, regular, ongoing live music, arts and entertainment venue has been opened at the revamped Queenscliff Town Hall, hosting monthly gigs and concerts throughout the year.
Kicking things off is Melbourne band Bones and Jones, who are bringing their fluid pop-rock tunes to the hall on December 10. Other scheduled acts for early 2022 include Tex Perkins and Matt Walker, William Crighton, Thornbird (with Vikki Thorn from The Waifs) and Julia Jackman. Tickets are available to be purchased online.
Thanks to support from the State Government through Creative Victoria and the Federal Government through their Live Music Australia grants program, the hall has undergone a slick update and now boasts new sound, lighting and vision equipment.
If there’s still a festival-sized hole in your heart and diary, we have more good news for you. A brand new music festival, By the Pier, will be coming to Queenscliff’s fair shores in March 2022 to keep you rocking out over three days to some of Australia’s top artists. The massive lineup includes Vera Blue, Kim Churchill, San Cisco, Harvey Sutherland, Client Liason and heaps more.
For a summer of music, salty hair and sand between the toes, it seems Queenscliff is the place to be – and we reckon the regional town is ripe and ready to welcome travellers back. Tickets are available to purchase via the website below.
