'Dream Of Being' aims to showcase local artists whose music immerses the listener into an ethereal soundscape. Drifting guitars, radiant synthesisers, and mesmerising melodies will lift the audience into a newfound headspace.

Right in the heart of Brunswick St, Bar Open has hosted roots, rock n roll and general brouhaha since 1998. Bar Open is notorious for its honest atmosphere and has a reputation for supporting experimental, live and local music. The band room is pumping 6 nights a week and drinks are served until late every night. Bar Open is a bastion of the old Fitzroy.

After a year spent contemplating our lives indoors, Bar Open is dedicated to reinvigorating the live music scene within the City of Yarra. Dream Of Being looks to bring the community back together through shared experience; celebrating the opening of doors that remained shut throughout this time.

Niine -

Niine the idiosyncratic mini ball of quirky goodness, has been hitting the live music scene hard with her vibrant song writing since 2017. As the first avalanche prog/pop artist, Niine brings a new sound and elation to the music scene both in her recordings and live shows. Her abstract view of the world, and secret punk attitude, is delivering what the music scene has craved.


Not as quiet as you would think, mesmerising bilingual folk-pop artist STAV. blurs the lines between singing and spoken word in a mostly Australian accent and unschooled Hebrew. Introspective and playful, her thought-provoking lyrics explore themes of migration, identity across generations and womanhood.

Freddie Jones -

Freddie Jones are a folk/punk band from Melbourne, comprised of Rosie Eve & Githmi Wettasinghe. The two have been making music together for four years as the acoustic duo Rosie & Githmi, but after releasing their first EP as Freddie Jones have teamed together with more members to perform live as a full band. Their songs deliver melancholy lyricism, accompanied with upbeat melodies.

Lovely Rita -

Lovely Rita are a guitar duo with a repertoire of originals and covers by classic and contemporary folk artists such as Joni Mitchell, Hank Williams, Bob Dylan, as well as Phoebe Bridgers and Bon Iver.
