About Live and Local

Live and Local is a grassroots live music event showcasing a diverse range of Western Sydney artists across mixed-use venues in the CBD. Experience performances in conventional venues, such as bars and restaurants, as well as happen upon less traditional spaces such as shops, boutiques and salons.

Live and Local features a localised area of concentrated venues so that easy walking from one venue to another leads to the discovery of multiple performances. This is the day to discover the extraordinary wealth of musical talent that calls Western Sydney home.

The event provides paid performance opportunities for musicians, the exposure to perform for new audiences and the occasion to create and develop relationships with local businesses, that may be nurtured into longer term, strategic business partnerships.
