SAVE OUR SCENE was established during the pandemic to be a voice for independent small to medium sized music venues across Victoria. Collectively we represent some of the most iconic and long-standing music venues in the country. With the help of industry groups, musicians and fans, we raised the alarm, reminding politicians and governing bodies that live music matters. United, SOS drew attention to the lasting impact the loss of our live music venues would have on artist development, our global status as a live music city and who were are.

 

In November 2021, restrictions were eased, finally bringing live music venues into line with activities carrying similar risk such as dancing at weddings, attending large sporting events and festivals. We thank every person who used their voice to ensure that live music will remain a huge part of Victoria’s culture, character and identity for the future - SOS.

WHO WE ARE

We represent independent small to medium music venues across Victoria, including some of the most iconic and long-standing music venues in the country. We are not the big end of town - we are not in the business of hosting stadium tours. We are the pubs, theatres and clubs where Australian musicians get their start and hone their craft.


We are the venues where Victorian music lovers see shows not just once a year, but every night of the week. Our venues nurture the part of Victoria’s music culture that is uniquely Victorian, providing community, connectedness and wellbeing to people across the state.
