Music performances are making a triumphant return to Lake Macquarie this year with a series of events kicking off next week.
The Live Music Lake Mac events will give residents a chance to sit back and relax to the sounds of local and NSW-based musicians all within a socially distanced and COVIDSafe setting.
Lake Macquarie Mayor Kay Fraser said it would continue to boost the local night-time economy and was designed to bring home-grown talent to local stages.
“Live music performances play a significant role in Australian cultural life,” she said.
“We love to celebrate as a community and we’re lucky to have lots of incredible local talent and musicians visiting from around the state.
“I know our community will enjoy getting out and about and enjoying live music again with some amazing upcoming talent.”
Gigs will be taking place at Rathmines and Warners Bay Theatres featuring an onsite bar serving beverages and light refreshments.
The first performances of 2021 include 19-Twenty on Thursday 28 January and Nathan Cavaleri on Friday 5 February, with additional performances later in February including Steve Balbi and Ash Grunwald.
19-Twenty have been headlining sell-out shows and festivals across the nation, while Nathan Cavaleri has been in the public eye since the age of 7 and is known as a blues guitar prodigy.
Details of each gig can be found on the council’s website and tickets are available now for just $35 per person (plus booking fee) or $30 per person for groups of four or more.
