Listen Up Music will complete a full complex takeover of The Factory Theatre, and all 6 of its stages, to put on music, mental health, comedy and theatre programming for a purposefully intimate crowd of 1,200 attendees.
60 artists including Nyxen, Tia Gostelow, Daft Punk Discovery, Alfie Arcuri will take to the 4 stages of music across the duration of the 1 day festival. All performers on the day will perform their Torch Song, the light that gets you through, as part of their full set.
The festival aims to attract attendees that want to see their favourite artists in an up-close-and-personal setting, not in a sprawling field with thousands of people, and will enable artists and fans alike to be vulnerable and feel safe through a unique experience.
In addition to the music stages, Torch Fest will house a stage of comedy & theatre and a stage with dedicated mental health programming, featuring mindfulness, music meditation, silent disco, mental health talks and will provide attendees with tools and resources to take care of their own mental health.
In the spirit of our partnership with Listen Up, Muso has been given a slot on the Glimmer stage to showcase one of our phenomenal musicians, along with their very own 'Torch Song'.
As always, we couldn't be prouder nor happier to represent such an amazing and impact organisation.
If you're hoping to step on stage at Torchfest with Muso, head on over to our website and sign up for an artist account, then find the Torchfest gig on the gig feed and show interest!
Our venue's general mode of service may have been disrupted due to the closure of our doors, but our customers are still out there and keen to stay connected to their local favourites

BoomChild have released a new dance-floor banger, and my Tasmanian oak floor boards are here for it.

The only plus side of some psycho virus out there stopping us all from playing gigs and slamming on the industry we love, is that we’ve been given the ticket to a one-way forced staycation. A journey of artistic discovery, where one slows down in order to keep up and come out the other side. Where finding new ways to be creative will keep you from falling into the decline of insanity.
