DIY Music Trivia

Fed Live

Get warmed up for Fed Live – host your own Music Trivia!

Iso is dragging on, everything on Netflix has been re-watched to death and our level of outside freedom would have the warden from The Shawshank Redemption tut-tutting to himself. Our oncebright minds are getting foggy and our once-buff bods are getting squishy.     

While we can’t inspire you to get down and give us 20 burpees (aren’t they the worst?) we can inspire you to dust off those brain cells and gather your music-loving mates (albeit virtually) and host an iso-friendly (and free!) night of music trivia!

Music History
Past Event
Anywhere is a stage at Fed Square Since 2002, we’ve been hosting small-time buskers to big-name performers from the Main-stage to the banks of the Yarra River. Transcending generations and genres, we’ve seen Opera to Beat-boxing and everything in between. We’re dedicated to supporting the Victorian music community and, in anticipation of Fed Live, the biggest music news Melbourne is soon to hear, we’ve dipped into the archives to take a trip down memory lane and revisit some of the unique and incredible performances the square has seen over the years.
