PRINCE BANDROOM

 
Music’s Home.

St Kilda. A place where all sorts of performers, artists, and pleasure seekers know they can come and experiment. And in the centre of it all: The Prince Bandroom. A place of dim lights and pulsing music where everyone- and that means everyone – can let loose.

No wonder a kaleidoscope of artists and entertainers have been bringing sweat, blood and beers to this stage for over six decades. If you’re wondering whether the rumours are true – they are.

History

When the Bandroom opened its doors back in 1950, nobody could have predicted the force it would become.

Starting off as a base for General McCarthur in World War 2, the 50s and 60s saw artists like Sidney Nolan flocking (and even living in the front bar) before the 70s punk renaissance had icons like Birthday Party and Nick Cave here to perform and just hang out.

The legendary line-up continued through the 80s and 90s, with Midnight Oil and Paul Kelly, You Am I and Silverchair, Lenny Kravitz and Prince all getting up to no good on our stage. And today? Everyone from Billie Eilish and Doja Cat through to G-Flip and Glass Animals are on our books.

So much more than just a venue, Prince Bandroom is a refuge from the mundane, a home away from home for everyone from rock and rollers to country towners, local punters to politicians.

Understated but never underestimated, once you’ve experienced live music at The Bandroom, you’ll keep coming back for more.
 

Upcoming Gigs

From the silky sonics of Glass Animals to the riotous fun of the Jackass Live Tour, The Bandroom calendar is packed with the expected, the unexpected, and everything in between. Check out our gig guide to see what’s coming up next.
