Resonate today announces even more events to their evolving roster of eclectic live music programming in Brunswick, Coburg and beyond. Unique live music events at Glenroy Library, Coburg Lake and Siteworks Brunswick have been revealed as well as the much-anticipated return of Coburg Night Market.
Loud in the Library will bring rising hip hop stars Teether and Kuya Neil with special guest Mulalo to Glenroy’s new public library space for a free performance on October 28. Specifically produced for young people aged 12-18, the event will also feature a hip hop beat making workshop with Teether and Kuya Neil.
ARIA Award winning children’s entertainers Teeny Tiny Stevies will headline amongst the lush surrounds of Coburg Lake on Sunday October 30. Sisters Beth and Byll Stephen have become one of the most sought after names in Australian live music and they’ll be proudly accompanied by The Vovos and Shiny Coin who will perform sets tailored for little ones. The event also includes a lantern-making workshop by The Lanternist and a music workshop with Club Kids Music Academy. The family-friendly, BYO picnic by the lake is a free event running 3-7pm at Coburg Lake Soundshell.
In December Resonate will join forces with Siteworks and Blak Dot Gallery in Brunswick to deliver Merri-Bek Fest – a celebration of Siteworks with a deadly line-up of First Nations Australian musicians. Siteworks and Blak Dot Gallery are on the precipice of redevelopment (state-of-the-art creative and community hub coming in 2024). Merri-bek Fest is a closing party prior to Siteworks redevelopment and will include exciting live music, an exploration of artists and artworks developed on site, workshops and an excellent makers market.
Coburg Night Market will also make a joyous return to Bridges Reserve in Coburg. Running three consecutive days December 9-11, the much-loved pre-Christmas event offers locals a smorgasbord of food and drink, family friendly live music and market stalls from local small business and creative entrepreneurs. Stages will be curated by beloved Triple R presenters Vivan Vo (Mooncake), Béz Zewdie (Represented) and Simon Winkler (Breaking and Entering).
These headlining events join dozens of new additions including a free, all day festival at Penny’s featuring RAT!Hammock, LOSER and Sunfruits. A Feminista Vinyl garden party at Coburg Lake with Merpire. More Family Jams at Brunswick Ballroom. A special Cool Room x Next Wave collaboration at Brunswick Mechanics Institute and a parallel universe named 1800 Cosmos orchestrated by Thickwave.
With a focus on unique, local and family friendly events, music will resonate from all corners of Melbourne’s Northern corridor throughout the coming months, welcoming the warmer weather at venues like The Woodlands Hotel, Noisy Ritual, Penny’s Bandroom, The B.East, Coburg RSL, Brunswick Ballroom, The Retreat and MORE.

“Now that the warmer weather has arrived, I can’t wait to enjoy some songs in the sunshine with other Merri-bek music lovers. This jam-packed schedule of events will resonate with all – I encourage everyone to enjoy a gig in Glenroy, a concert in Coburg or beats in Brunswick!”
