Melbourne continues to earn its reputation as Australia’s live music state, with the National Gallery of Victoria offering free music performances in the NGV garden every Sunday in February.
Catch Dan Kelly’s Dream Band, Melbourne melodist Ainslie Wills and post-punk four-piece Gold Class at Summer Sundays at NGV.
On Valentine’s Day, emerging talent Ella Thompson will appear with special guest DJ Planète.
Indulge in NGV’s summer BBQ or (practical Polly) pack a picnic to enjoy under the shade of the landmark Summer Architecture Commission every Sunday in February.
‘Summer Sundays is one of the highlight events in the NGV’s summer program celebrating local talent and we are proud to support emerging and established local musicians and DJs every summer. Throughout February visitors can enjoy live music and great food underneath the shade of the Summer Architecture Commission designed by John Wardle Architects.’ – Tony Ellwood, Director, NGV.
