Melbourne’s idyllic summer events are starting this Friday, 19 October with a free Federation Square Live concert featuring The Merindas, Riverboy, Kee’ahn and Bumpy!
Curated by the newly Victorian Music Development Office (VDMO), the event has a strong program of Melbourne-based artists. Central to this is soulful and gritty, The Merindas, who will deliver their atmospheric mix of contemporary electro-pop styling and indigenous songs.
This female duo will play alongside the other three First Peoples musicians: Kee’ahn, Bumpy and Riverboy, who will each provide different styles of music.
The first concert of its kind, this Federation Square event was programmed by newly appointed VMDO Yorta Yorta musician and educator, Neil Morris, who is the Music Business Manager First Peoples.
“One focus at the VMDO is our investment to create and facilitate opportunities for Victorian based First Peoples music artists and managers through a series of partnerships with the music sector, including festivals and digital platforms,” explains Morris. The VDMO is key part in the Victorian Government’s Music Works strategy committed to developing the Victorian music industry.
Organised as a live, free all ages event at Fed Square, the concert will also have food trucks, beanbags and astro-turf for music lovers to kick back and let the good times roll.
