A new concert series, Live At The Gardens, is heading to Melbourne’s picturesque Royal Botanic Gardens this November.

Led by the team behind A Day On The Green, the events will take place in partnership with the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne and Roundhouse Entertainment. Over two weekends, the concert series will launch to up to 5,000 punters in November, followed by a second edition of shows in March 2025.

The line-up of artists set to perform at the launch of Live At The Gardens will be announced soon, with organisers planning for the concert series to become an ongoing part of Melbourne’s cultural calendar.

In a statement, Roundhouse Entertainment Director Michael Newton commented, “We are thrilled to launch Live At The Gardens, a one-of-a-kind music festival, creating an experience that celebrates music, nature and community.
