The Malthouse Outdoor Stage will seat 300 people cabaret-style (seated on a table), and is funded by a combination of $300,000 from the Sidney Myer Fund and $1.95million from the state government.
Joining the aforementioned artists on the January bill is Sweet Whirl, Mildlife, Gordon Koang, HTRK, Surprise Chef, Good Morning and Emma Donovan & The Putbacks. The Penny Drop-presented gig series kicks off on January 21 with Kaiit, and finishes with RVG on January 31.
Tickets go on sale December 7 via the Malthouse Theatre – due to the carabet setup, they must be purchased as a table of six.
The Malthouse Outdoor Stage is set to run permanently from 2021 for six months of every year, and will also host comedy, theatre, cabaret, dance and talks.
