Shifting Thresholds | hillsceneLIVE 2019 

Explore live art in a forest edge festival and find yourself engaging with experimental artists and their enthralling works.

Hillscene Live 2019 has an amazing program over 2 days, showcasing this year’s coterie of artists and a delectable buffet of workshops, dialogues, live music, ART, and more. 

hillsceneLIVE is a weekend live art festival inspired and created by artists who take juicy risks, ask big questions and make bold statements with their work. Experience live art and performance, including Theatre, Dance, Sound Art, Comedy, Spoken Word, Circus and especially those works that don't fit easily into these categories.

Each year the hillsceneLIVE festival comes to life in an under utilsed space in the Dandenong Ranges, from old offices and heritage cottages to public gardens. Explore live art in a forest edge festival where you’ll find yourself in spaces from wide landscapes, to nooks and crannies – engaging with experimental artists and their enthralling works.

“hillsceneLIVE was an incredible journey on which you never knew what was around the corner. It was a chance to interact and step outside your comfort zone and the more you went along with it, the more you were able to gain. I came away feeling inspired to create.” Audience member - 2016

An Evening with the Waifs - SOLD OUT!

The original road warriors, the Waifs have built a career out of continually circling Australia and the globe. From bustling cities to the farthest regional and coastal towns, they have spent the past 25 years reuniting with old friends and gathering new fans, thanks to their enchanting live shows and affable natures.

 "(the Waifs) act is a sonic pearl of the highest order. Groovy and hip shaking, bold yet honest. The drive of Josh Cunningham's guitar and Vikki Thorn's passionate blues harp playing set the scene for a sweet set to follow" Tom O'Donovan - themusic.com.au

Lloyd Spiegel ~ Cut and Run Tour

Acoustic Blues master Lloyd Spiegel is proud to announce the release of his 10th album ‘Cut and Run’ and is headed out on a mammoth Australian tour to get people acquainted with the new tracks, and is not a show to miss for those who love incredible guitar playing, great songs and the odd tall tale.

‘Cut and Run’ is the final part of an unexpected trilogy about personal redemption Lloyd didn’t even realise he was writing until it was finished. Where previous albums ‘Backroads’ and ‘This Time Tomorrow’ had Lloyd asking questions and begging forgiveness for the sins of his past, on ‘Cut and Run’ he has found the tenacity to face the next chapter of his life.
