CBD Sounds: Supporting local music

2020 was a long, quiet year as our city music scene settled into COVID hibernation. Get your ears ready, all that is about to change with live music returning to our streets, cafes and venues this Summer.

With restrictions easing, Wollongong City Council has partnered with artists, venues and producers to create CBD Sounds - a program of free performances throughout Crown St Mall.

Guitarist Lucy Clifford appears in Live @ Lunch.
