SAY goodbye to sweaty mosh pits this summer as Federation Square hosts a month of free outdoor music gigs. Juliana Mare has the lineup.

Sunset in the middle of the city will be even better throughout January as the Main Stage at Fed Square hosts a series of gigs on the 17th, 26th and 31st. Catering to all music tastes, the lineup includes Triple J’s Unearthed winners The Paper Kites,who have toured with some pretty epic acts including Passenger, Josh Pyke and Boy & Bear.

The stage will also feature the folk pop sounds of Vance Joy, hip-hop/rap music from Diafrix and even 60’s style pop music from Hungry Kids of Hungary.

If you haven’t already made plans for Australia Day on January 26, head out with your mates for the Diafrix and Chance Waters set from 4:30pm onwards. All the gigs are free, suitable for all ages and will definitely draw in a crowd.
