Leaps And Bounds Music Festival


Thursday 13 July 2017 - Sunday 23 July 2017

Just Announced

Yarra City Council is excited to announce the launch of the fifth annual Leaps and Bounds Music Festival opening Thursday 13 July featuring Augie March, Jess Ribeiro and The Pink Tiles plus a very special guest to perform Paul Kelly's ‘Leaps & Bounds’.

Having cut their teeth in classic Yarra venues including The Punters Club, Empress of India, Truffula Tree and The Evelyn, with some members still strongly connected to the area, Augie March are a fitting act to launch the 2017 instalment. They are regularly touted as one of Australia’s ‘greatest’ or ‘finest’ bands; albums and songs make ‘best ever’ lists and their songs get played at weddings and funerals. Children have been named after them, and the characters featured in their songs.

Likewise, guest Jess Rebeiro is no stranger to critical acclaim, with her 2012 debut record My Little River being shortlisted for the Australian Music Prize, and awarded the ABC National Album of the Year, and the AIR Awards Best Country Album of 2012. The Pink Tiles continue to impress with their recently released, critically acclaimed sophomore album, #1 Fan, earning them feature album of the week on Edge Radio, PBS Breakfast and in Beat Magazine.

Taking place at Richmond’s iconic Corner Hotel, the Opening Night show will be the first of over 100 events that the 10-day music festival will deliver across 24 participating venues and local record stores in Australia’s busiest and most diverse gigging municipality – The City of Yarra from Thursday 13 – Sunday 23 July 2017.

Leaps and Bounds 2017
This years’ festival delivers 200 diverse acts across the multi-genre Leaps and Bounds program with new family friendly events catering to all budgets, as well as the return of some unique festival favourites such as ‘Smith Street Dreaming’, PBS’s Acid Country Live to Air, and the Professional Development and Youth Services Programs.

The full program will be revealed on Tuesday 9 May.
