What's On:
Our Events

Events at The Boîte focus on supporting culturally diverse live music. We host concerts at a variety of locations around Melbourne, regional Victoria, and we regularly have these concerts with a live streamed ticket option.  Connection and accessibility are our focus so that anyone, anywhere can watch in the comfort of their own home. All event times are displayed in Melbourne time.

 

Since its inception, The Boîte has presented high-quality acoustic concerts in intimate live music settings in venues across Melbourne and regional Victoria. Diversity is the hallmark of these concerts, providing support for hundreds of local talented musicians, most of whom are from recent immigrant communities as we aim to contribute to a richer, more inclusive Australia.

Regular concerts happen at Mark Street Hall in Fitzroy North, the Box Hill Community Arts Centre, the Abbotsford Convent and St Margaret's in Eltham. Occasional events take place in countless venues, including but not limited to the Melbourne Recital Centre, fortyfivedownstairs, 75 Reid street, and Hamer Hall. See below our upcoming events and their locations.

"There were many beautiful aural and visual moments…difficult to pinpoint the strongest memory. It had an ephemeral feeling - I wanted to hold onto a moment but it passed and moved onto another captivating piece”
