Don’t miss your chance to look inside a ‘Melbourne Music Landmark’, Bakehouse Studios!

If you’ve always wanted to look inside the studios where your favourite musicians hone their craft, here’s your chance. A secret place where The walls of drip with the history of Australian music, where the likes of Nick Cave, Paul Kelly, Missy Higgins, the Drones and thousands of bands have called home. Bakehouse is the headquarters of SLAM (Save Live Australia’s Music) and where the SLAM rally, “Australia’s largest Cultural Protest” was born.

Bakehouse will open their doors to the public for the first time ever and to celebrate the Leaps and Bounds Music Festival are throwing a street party in Little Hoddle Street!

Featuring Bakehouse favourites Harmony, ‘the mongrel concoction of gallows blues balladry, and soaring Gospel vocals and splatter jazz quartet The Impossible No Goods featuring BJ Morriszonkle take to the stage from 11am.

To coincide with their first ever public open day, Bakehouse will reveal a very special collaboration with some of Australia’s leading Contemporary Visual artists and artisans. Contributors presenting new works include Patricia Piccinini, Emily Floyd, Veronica Kent and Dirty Three guitarist and painter Mick Turner. In a world first, visual artists have been let loose in some of the smallest and grungiest rehearsal rooms to create installations especially for musicians in this working studio.

You’ll see installations made of Icing from the darlings of NGV’s Melbourne Now, the Hotham Street Ladies, Taxidermy from vegan artist Julia deVille, a metal room by jeweller Cass Partington, Early Punk images from photographer Peter Milne, a bespoke ”backstage’ by design duo Brustman + Boyd and a homage to pulp fiction by screen printer Stewart Russell. Tours will run through the afternoon.
Leaps and Bounds Music Festival is proudly presented by City of Yarra, Music Victoria, Beat Magazine & PBS 106.7 FM with the support of the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation.
