Music Victoria, supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria, is set to deliver a series of live music events across flood impacted regions to reunite communities and support live music venues in flood impacted areas.
Live Music for Flood Recovery events kicked off in Shepparton in December 2022, before a call-out to live music venues, artists, presenters and community members in flood impacted regions to propose events for their area.
So far the program has supported events from Mystic Park (Wemba Wemba Country), Kerang (Wemba Wemba Country) and North Wangaratta (Taungurung Country) featuring local artists including Imparja Petit, Elias Lanyon, The Remnantz, Jazy Jade and more.
Over the coming months, events in Echuca (Yorta Yorta Country), Wedderburn, Boort and Cohuna (Dja Dja Wurrung Country) and Kerang (Wamba Wamba Country) will see local artists Amelia May, The Strangers Duo, Kitty Rae, The Colour Court, Greg Champion and more take to their respective stages to bring music to flood impacted communities.
More events to be announced in Euroa, Mooroopna, Rochester, Seymour, Tallarook, the Loddon Valley and Murray regions and other locations will be announced soon.
