The Festival is currently calling on local musicians, bands and venues to participate in the
City of Port Phillip Mayor, Cr Bernadene Voss said the Live N Local Festival plays an
important role in providing a platform for local bands and musicians to showcase their talent

jam-packed week of entertainment in August. The hugely popular program will offer
musicians across all genres a chance to showcase their talent, and we encourage all to
