Party At An Underground Roller Disco At Leaps And Bounds Music Festival

This ten day festival promises a world of fun.

If you’ve been missing live music, you’re going to love this. Leaps and Bounds Music Festival is back and is taking over the City of Yarra for ten days this July. There’s going to be live music (of course), as well as other fun things like a pop-up cinema and an underground roller disco. Leaps and Bounds is taking place from Friday July 16 to Sunday July 25.

The festival program is jam-packed with things to do. There will be live music and events happening in Abbotsford, Collingwood, Fitzroy, Fitzroy North and Richmond.

Cinema under the stars

Kicking off the event is a pop-up cinema under the stars. Head to Whitlam Place in Fitzroy for this free event. Across three nights, from Friday July 16 to Sunday July 18, there will be screenings of films like Footloose, My Name is GulpililĀ and The Adventures of Priscilla Queen of the Dessert. These screenings will start at 6pm and end around 10pm, so bring a blanket to keep warm!

Find Whitlam Place on the corner of Moor and Napier Streets in Fitzroy.

Collingwood Underground Roller Disco

On Saturday July 17, head to Collingwood Carpark to take part in a fantastic underground roller disco. Go skating in the roller rink and get the good vibes going with some awesome tunes. After skating and dancing, get your energy back with some food and drink available on-site. This is a ticketed event available for all ages, and skates are available for hire if you don’t have your own. Tickets are available at the door and it’s $10 for general admission.

Find the carpark at 44 Harmsworth Street, Collingwood, VIC, 3066.


The Lot

A nondescript parking lot in Abbotsford will be transformed into an imaginative space over two days. It will be a showcase of style and talent from musicians pushing the next chapter of hip hop, RnB and more.

Discover The Lot at the carpark on 329 Victoria Street, Abbotsford, on July 24 and 25.

Live at Charcoal Lane

Visit Charcoal Lane restaurant for dinner and a show! Over four nights, there will be four different menus and programs. Sit down and try some native Australian cuisine while you listen to intimate performances from talented Indigenous artists.
