UPDATE - Leaps and Bounds Music Festival 2020

Given the extraordinary circumstances and restrictions put into place as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are putting on hold the plans for Leaps and Bounds Music Festival 2020.

The Leaps and Bounds Music Festival is Yarra Council’s annual winter celebration of the vibrant music scene in our city.  A celebration of local music and showcase of Australian musicians; every year the festival brings people together special gigs in Yarra’s live music venues, supports record stores, music businesses and community organisations.

Our call out to music acts and venues for proposals to participate in Leaps and Bounds 2020 has now been withdrawn while we work on alternatives to support our live music community.

We recognise live music plays a key role in the creative and economic identity of Yarra. The music industry, in the extreme circumstances it finds itself, is showing incredible levels of community spirit and resilience that is indicative of its creativity and talent.

We are committed to support the music community to keep playing music for our community.

For anyone requiring support during this difficult time, we encourage you to contact the 24 hour wellbeing support line offered by Support Act 1800 959 500 or jump online at supportact.org.au.
