Synopsis

So what does the live music scene in Sydney look like today, where do artists go to perform, or is the Sydney scene dead? We take a look at Sydney’s sound then and now.

Live music is that indescribable connection between an artist, the crowd and a moment. It’s food for the soul, and a vitally important part of our culture.

The live music scene in Sydney has seen some amazing artists get their break and establish successful careers, but over the years the scene has taken a big hit. Venues have been closing across the city, and our culture has been irrevocably altered. So what does the live music scene in Sydney look like today, where do artists go to perform, or is the Sydney scene dead?

Featuring appearances from the likes of Ian Moss (Cold Chisel), Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore, Dave Faulkner (Hoodoo Gurus), Flight Facilities, Alison Avron of Sydney venue The Newsagency, Hannah Crofts (All Our Exes Live In Texas), Lindsay McDougall (Franzal Rhomb), Tex Perkins, Trish & Jodi (The Clouds) and many, many more… Turn it Up takes a look at Sydney’s sound then and now.
