Festival Crowd

As our Newcastle skyline grows with ongoing development, it has never been more important that we voice our support for live music and our live music venues.

Sound Station is your chance to do just that - and to enjoy an incredible day and night of live music showcasing some of the best local bands our city has produced over the past five decades!

By showing your support for live music, we can prove to government that live music forms the soundtrack of our city and must be protected into the future.

And the best part is, it's all FREE! All you have to do is show up and have a great time...

Don't Just Love Live Music...
