one epic weekend in the industrial heart of Collingwood, the Melbourne Warehouse Music Festival is taking music out of the concert hall, theatre, pub or club into a raw warehouse space so everyone can feel welcome and give a new genre a go.

In a jaw dropping eclectic line-up of Australian talent are: ABC Young Performer of Year, concert pianist

HOANG PHAM; KAMMERMUSIK String Ensemble (MSO and Orchestra Victoria members); new music specialist solo cellist BLAIR HARRIS; LA PRIMA OPERA (stars of Australian opera singing the hits everyone knows – perfect for opera virgins); THE STRANGE BEDFELLOWS cabaret with multi award winning JACQUI DARK and KANEN BREEN; singer guitarist JACK JONES aka IRWIN THOMAS (Southern Sons, Electric Mary, Back to Beatles); Celtic Festival favourites all-female BHAN TRE and the ultimate 1930s Gypsy Jazz band THE FURBELOWS.

The Grand piano will be supplied by Australian Piano Warehouse, and the festival organisers give their thanks to the supporters and sponsors; Erik and Elizabeth Gross Foundation, HENKELL BROTHERS, Grant Violins and everyone supporting MWMF through the Australian Cultural Fund.

Be sure to head to the Melbourne Warehouse Music Festival on November 4-5 2017 at Schoolhouse Studios, 81 Rupert Street Collingwood.
