After the huge success of last year’s sold out Live at the Bowl show, Arts Centre Melbourne has once again teamed up with Australian youth music not-for-profit organisation The Push to stage another epic all-ages event on Sunday 10 April featuring Dune Rats, Beddy Rays and Teen Jesus and the Jean Teasers.

“After staging an epic sold out show at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl in 2021, The Push is stoked to be continuing our partnership with Arts Centre Melbourne again this year. Now more than ever we need to be giving all ages audiences the opportunity to experience live music in a safe and accessible way. We can’t wait to get back out there with thousands of young people again in April,” said The Push CEO Kate Duncan.

Curated with the help of the All-Ages Live at the Bowl Events Team – a committee of the next generation of music industry professionals – this event gives young people the opportunity to experience live music at a low cost in a drug and alcohol-free environment.
Headliners Dune Rats top the bill fresh from polling #49 on this year’s triple j Hottest 100 with ‘Up’ and dropping their latest single, ‘What A Memorable Night’. This will be the first time audiences hear the new track as part of a punchy and engaging set, along with their broad sense of humour that’s as effective as it is immature.

Beddy Rays have been making music together since they first met on the primary school oval back in the day. With a growing loyal fanbase, tracks that leave you desperate for a summer festival and humble, down-to-earth personalities, their music now echoes throughout backyards of Australia.


Channelling Riot Grrrl-era energy with a 2021 spin, Teen Jesus and the Jean Teasers are the most natural, unapologetic and damn likeable punk-rockers you’ll meet. Since forming in 2019, the group has amassed a keen following having just cracked one million streams on Spotify.

As The Push is dedicated to supporting young, local and emerging artists, a Victorian high-school-aged artist will be invited to join the line-up. This will give young people aged 15-17 the opportunity to perform in front of a live audience at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl for the first time. Artists can apply here.

This is an all-ages, drug, alcohol and smoke-free event. Attendees under 15 must be accompanied by an adult.


The Push is an Australian youth music organisation and registered charity based in Melbourne. Over three decades we have supported more than 800,000 young people with access to contemporary music programs and events. Our work is guided by our purpose of giving every young person the opportunity to participate and thrive in Australian music. For more information visit thepush.com.au

Live at the Bowl is an open-air performance series at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl running from January – April 2022. From home-grown favourites to international acts, audiences can enjoy a stunning program of music, dance, circus, community-led and family-friendly events right in the middle of Melbourne. Created by Arts Centre Melbourne, Live at the Bowl aims to bring joy to audiences and invigorate the creative sector. As we emerge from yet another year of closure, the second series is a significant moment for live performance.

Tickets to The Push all-ages event will be on sale from 10am this Thursday via artscentremelbourne.com.au
