Live music back at the Bay

Tuesday 13 October 2020

A brand-new music festival supporting local and emerging musicians and artists kicks off this weekend at Glenelg’s Moseley Square.

Titled The Local, the live music festival will feature 12 bands and DJs in a relaxed, laid-back event that everyone can enjoy, from 1pm-7pm on Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 October.

It’ll be held under the marquee that was set up in the square for the roller skating event which has just wrapped up.

It’s the first live music event at Holdfast Bay since we debuted The SpinCycle Music Festival in January this year.

Once again, the focus is giving up-and-coming musicians a chance to shine on stage. Among them is Bermuda Bay, who formed their band at the age of 14 through the Brighton Secondary School music program.

The line-up for the two-day festival includes:

Saturday 17 October:

  • Sax Bates
  • Mannix and the Meltdowns
  • Loopole
  • The Effends
  • Bermuda Bay
  • Ethanol Blend

Sunday 18 October:

  • Big Uncle
  • Love Bus
  • Colter
  • Big Sloe
  • The Mondays
  • SODA
  • Venice Queens

“Our spring-summer events season is underway and it’s so great to be able to hold fun, community events that can be managed in a COVID-safe way,” Holdfast Bay Mayor Amanda Wilson said.

“The Local live music event this weekend follows on from our Bay City Rolling roller skating event which was a great success over the October school holidays.

“The Glenelg Sunset Markets are back in Moseley Square at the end of October and we have some other exciting events planned that will be announced in coming weeks”.

The Local live music is a free event and is suitable for all ages.

It is an unlicensed event and COVID marshals will be in attendance to monitor physical distancing and density requirements.
