☀️ Announcing the summer edition of the Bakehouse Sessions: Secret rehearsals at MPavilion. ☀️ Since its humble beginnings down a bluestone lane in North Fitzroy, Bakehouse Studios’ award-winning spaces—now located on Hoddle Street—have been at the heart of Melbourne’s music scene for over 25 years. Each week, around 400 musicians pass through Bakehouse Studios, from solo artists and kids having their first jams to international touring artists. (Among the names of those who have graced the rehearsal rooms are Australian legends like Missy Higgins, Olivia Newton-John, The Cat Empire, Vance Joy, The Saints and The Drones, not to mention international acts as diverse as Tool, Beck, Ed Sheeran, the MC5, Cat Power, The Smashing Pumpkins and Judas Priest.) This year, MPavilion is proud to partner with Bakehouse Studios to open up Rem Koolhaas and David Gianotten of OMA’s amphitheatre-style structure to some of the most exciting emerging and established musical acts in Bakehouse’s little black book.

Between October 2017 and February 2018, MPavilion will periodically transform into an extension of Bakehouse’s iconic studios, bringing a series of public rehearsals and secret shows to the Queen Victoria Gardens in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD. Visitors to MPavilion will be treated to a special behind-the-scenes look at the construction of songs, the pre-production process for a recording or a full-blown dress rehearsal. The first half of the season saw some breathtaking acts under the MPavilion roof, including: Totally Mild, Time For Dreams, Bitch Diesel, the Liam Linley Band, He Cries Diamonds, Blyolk, Endrey, and the Make It Up Club. Who will we announce for the December and January sessions? You'll just have to wait and see. Line-up announcements will happen a few days before each event—click 'Going' to receive updates here as they happen.
