Melbourne live music history celebrated

The Victorian State Government is promoting Melbourne’s live music history by celebrating the history of Festival Hall.

Among those unveiled this week includes the official naming of street outside Festival Hall to Wren Lane in honour of the Wren family, which has owned and operated the venue for almost 100 years.

On an adjoining bridge on the new Regional Rail Link, a series of light box installations have been set up with images of six names in popular music: Nick Cave, Angus Young, Kylie Minogue, Daniel Johns, Michael Hutchence, and Chrissy Amphlett.

Minister for Public Transport Terry Mulder told TMN, “Festival Hall is an icon of Melbourne and its rich history of live music. This is a wonderful way to honour its legacy, the family which established it and the legacy of the great Australian artists who have performed here.”
