Music Events

Following hot on the heels of the very successful Busking Festival Weekend in May 2022, aRTS Rutherglen is now making plans for an ongoing presence for live music at various venues around Rutherglen (and the wider area).

These shows will feature original songwriters from both Australia and overseas who are touring through regional Victoria.

The emphasis will be on showcasing the vast and diverse talent of these independent artists as they share their stories – within their lyrics and also in their chat between songs.

We’re talking venues Big (as in Rutherglen Memorial Hall) and Small (as in some of the local cafes and churches) and perhaps even Tiny (the Chapel at Rutherglen Convent). Some of these will be fairly intimate shows where audiences listen and where you could quite literally hear a pin-drop.

Stay tuned to this page for updates.
