Vinyl Revival, Brunswick
Melbourne's Home of Live Music
Long considered Melbourne’s home of live music, Brunswick has a rich history steeped in counter culture, music and art. You can feel it in the band-room reverb pulsating from any one of Brunswick’s many live music venues. In a converted wool shed beside the Upfield rail line – a kindly reminder of the area’s former industry days as a large-scale textiles manufacturer – you’ll find Howler, the beating heart of music in Brunswick. Their dedicated performance space plays host to an eclectic range of local and international indie rockers, EDM bedroom producers and the avant-garde. Not only that, they offer one of Melbourne’s tastiest DJ lineups blasting sweet tunes into the late hours. And where do they get their latest selection of European EDM breakbeat, disco, funk, tech house and trans beats? Non other than Vinyl Revival, Sydney Rd of course.
To accomodate this thriving scene of live tunes is the annual Brunswick Music Festival, Melbourne’s longest running inner city music festival. For two weeks every March, Sydney Rd Brunswick plays host to swag of live music performances, and every one of its famed music haunts, like The Jazzlab and The Spotted Mallard to name but a few, are billed to the rafters with local and international acts. It’s just another example of why Brunswick is widely regarded as the home of music in Melbourne.
