Come to the Sidney Myer Music Bowl, our versatile, multi-purpose, outdoor venue in the lush surrounds of Kings Domain, and join the annual magic as the Bowl lights up to the winking candles of Carols by Candlelight or groove to the beats of huge headline acts as they take to the massive stage in front of thousands of fans.

The Sidney Myer Music Bowl has been part of Melbourne’s entertainment scene since 1959.

Grab one of our 2,000 seats, or join 11,000 of your closest friends sprawling on the lawn, and take in the best rock concerts, symphonic performances, theatrical extravaganzas and more.

Over its long history, the Sidney Myer Music Bowl has played host to the likes of The Seekers, AC/DC, Paul McCartney, Neil Diamond, Metallica, Florence and the Machine and the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, just to name a few, not to mention the odd ice skating event—The Sidney Myer Music Bowl, and the many hundreds of thousands who’ve flocked to it, have literally seen it all!
