Local music will stream down Fitzmaurice Street on Saturday 10 March as part of Fitz Live, in a new celebration of Wagga Wagga’s great musical talents.
Fitz Live will showcase the diversity of the city’s incredible local acts across the music scene, from jazz to rap, blues to pop and even a splash of indie rock, at various venues along Fitzmaurice Street.
Artists will pop up in venues at set times between 11am and 7pm on the day.
Wagga Wagga City Council Cultural Officer Tracie Miller says this event is a great opportunity to discover new and original local music.
“Wagga Wagga is home to many fabulous artists and we hope people can enjoy a range of local, live music while they’re out shopping or enjoying a late lunch on a Saturday afternoon,” Ms Miller said.
“The acts are staged to occur throughout the afternoon, so there will be plenty of opportunities for people to wander down Fitzmaurice Street, follow a trail of great music and catch a few shows.”
Crowds will be treated to more than twenty acts, who will perform at the following venues:
- Cave BBQ
- Kidsons Cycles
- Thirsty Crow
- Knights Meats and Deli
- Romano’s Hotel
- Cafe Sonder
- Mantra Pavilion
- Giuseppe's Restaurant & Bar
- Uneke Lounge
- Eastern Riverina Arts
Romano’s Hotel Licensee Belinda King says Fitz Live will be a great event for the precinct.
"We're really looking forward to seeing the Fitzmaurice Street end of the City activated with some amazing musicians during Fitz Live,” Ms King said.
“This event is a great way for local businesses to collaborate and showcase the diverse musical talent that is on offer in Wagga."
All business venues for Fitz Live are members of the Wagga Tourism Partner Program, an initiative coordinated by Wagga Wagga City Council’s Visitor Economy and Events team to build tourism and boost visitation to our city.
