BUSH acknowledges the Wurundjeri People of the Kulin Nation whose land our events take place on and whose land we work upon every day. Sovereignty has never been ceded and no treaty has ever been signed. Always was and always will be Aboriginal land.

Welcome to BUSH

Bush Music Festival exhibits some of our favourite established and emerging artists of the so called 'Melbourne' punk scene and beyond, aiming to create spaces for diverse bands to perform in front of their biggest fans. We aspire to bring communities together around music and the arts so that Melbourne as a whole can benefit from the curious, compelling and important things that come out of diversity. 

 

Bush is an entirely volunteer run, not-for-profit, grassroots organisation. Our organisers and volunteers are passionate about expanding the boarders of the Melbourne music scene and promoting emerging and under-heard acts whilst avoiding structures that too-often make creative communities insular and exclusive.

 

Whilst past events have taken place in various locations, including The Old Bar and a three-day camping festival amongst the beautiful rolling hills of Gippsland, the Bush team have set their sights bigger and better things for the future.
