A summer of live music

  • 21 November 2021

Do you love quality, homegrown live entertainment?

If you’re nodding your head enthusiastically, we suggest you clear some space in your calendar this summer. Locally Made & Played is back and hitting up 22 popular venues across the city, and it’s not to be missed!

Locally Made & Played is brought to you by City of Newcastle’s live music grant funding which aims to promote local grassroots artists and provide a live and unique offering for venues.

There will be more than 80 live music, micro theatre and comedy-style performances held across the city between 1- 20 December in the lead up to Christmas.

The initiative is a win win - not only does it boost the live music scene in Newcastle and support local artists, it also supports our local hospitality industry. After the year we've had, this support is more important than ever. It's time to celebrate and reinvigorate our local creative industries who've had it tough over the past six months.

Oh, and did we mention that it also means a more dynamic Newcastle for you? A vibrant local live music scene is vital to ensuring Newcastle continues to offer a bustling arts and culture scene, and a lively, diverse and safe night-time economy.

Whether you’re keen to start your weekend on the dance floor, or unwind on a Sunday afternoon to some laid-back tunes, the line-up has something to suit all musical tastes.

For a full list of artists, dates and times see the Locally Made & Played event listing.

But wait, there's more! In January Live and Out will kick off featuring live music and performances at eight weekend events held in Gregson Park, Centennial Park and Jesmond Park Playground. 

The Live and Out initiative is funded under City of Newcastle's COVID-19 Community Economic Resilience Package (CERP) and is all about bringing the local community back together while creating opportunities for live outdoor entertainment this summer.

If you're keen to soak up the energy and atmosphere of live performance while supporting Newcastle's cultural scene, keep your eyes peeled for more information to come soon!

And if that's still not enough, make sure you check out our Music category regularly for the best musical events in Newcastle.
