Leaps and Bounds 2022
The Leaps and Bounds Music Festival will put the ‘live’ back in live music this winter, with an electrifying program of in-person gigs showcasing the artists, producers and local venues that make the City of Yarra Melbourne’s music capital.
The festival is set to delight live music lovers of all persuasions, with shows across 35 venues from the enduring dive bars of Fitzroy and Collingwood to the historic Abbotsford Convent; from town halls to record stores and everywhere in between.
Kicking off on 24 June, for 10 days and 10 nights Leaps and Bounds will help regenerate the local live music scene and bring artists and their audiences together again, following a devastating couple of years for the industry.
Yarra City Council is thrilled to be partnering with local venues, producers and artists to present a program that celebrates the breadth and diversity of our local live music industry.
The festival will spotlight First Nations artists, LGBTIQ+ performers, dance, community radio and independent record stores. Events will also honour the unique history and cultural impact of some iconic local venues, as well as provide a platform for the next generation of young artists and producers.
