Arts Centre Melbourne is set to re-introduce the Australian Music Vault  and offer new entertainment options in the next stage of opening the Melbourne Arts Precinct.

Features of the next stage of opening will include Vault Sessions: Live & Lo-Fi, presenting performance sessions on the forecourt by Melbourne-based musicians, a special First Nations Playlist curated by Allara Patterson Briggs which will be played across all venue spaces and the unveiling of Me & Uoo-Uoo, two spectacular public art sculptures supporting the 150 year anniversary of The Royal Children’s Hospital.

The Australian Music Vault will be open from 15 January, with ticketed timed entry to manage capacity. Vault Sessions: Live & Lo-Fi will begin from the same date with free live music performances on the forecourt on Friday and Saturday afternoons from 5.30pm.

The return of Arts Centre Melbourne’s Theatres Building is a steadily developing process involving ongoing consultation with the Victorian Government and Department of Health and Human Services.

A series by the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra in March is earmarked as the first ticketed event of 2021, with plans to perform to a CovidSAFE Hamer Hall. The capacity of this event is still yet to be determined and will be based on government recommendations.
