See our Fed Live finalists perform live at Fed Square!

By popular demand, the very best artists from our smash-hit Fed Live competition are coming to Fed Square, live and in person, to perform – and it’s completely free!

From hip hop to thrash pop, melodic musings to indie ballads, Fed Square is coming alive with free music every Saturday for four weeks over summer.

It’s all happening inside Fed Oasis. So grab a comfy seat and soak up the vibes – check the schedule below, and we’ll see you there!

Seb Szabo

16 January - 6:00pm

Inspired by the cinematic indie rock of Coldplay and The Kings of Leon. A gifted lyricist with a resonant voice, Seb’s onstage presence is intimate, vulnerable and honest, built to lift your spirits and empty your lungs. 

Jack Carleton

16 January - 7:00pm

Rock’n’Roll had to die so that this kid could climb out of the coffin. The mysterious and elusive multi-instrumentalist emerges from the darkest of bar room shadows with a half drunk bottle and all the swagger and stagger of a by-gone age. Songs and whispers of heartbreak, excess, and the night just gone, follow him all the way from the dark side of rock n roll, to the light of the stage, and back.

Taylah Carroll

23 January 6:00pm

Woozy and dark, commanding and vulnerable, dreamy alt-rock and confessional indie-folk, Taylah Carroll juxtaposes anxiety and self-assuredness as she explores the common terror of the quarter-life crisis. It’s a real self-explorative bildungsroman – Google it – laying her heartstrings bare.

Frank James

23 January 7:00pm

Last-man-standing after midnight at a boozy wedding music. Bopping-in-the-front-row-as-you-sober-up-and-start-wondering-how-your-ex-is-doing stuff. Part Super Hans, part Aldous Snow, part Jim Morrison. All sex appeal.

Mighty Duke & The Lords

23 January 8:00pm

Crisp linen suits and sharp-witted lyrics meet junk percussion and double entendre. Whether on land or on the open seas, Mighty Duke & The Lords keep the tropical cyclone of mad calypso rhythm shaking until the fish have gone to sleep!

Xyla Haigh

30 January - 6:00pm

Typically spending evenings in a hypnotic haze of bedroom loops and endless contemplation, Xylah’s songs explore the perplex and melancholic angst of navigating life as a 20-something. Her music is therapeutic escapism for those trapped in withering emotional binds, looking for a way to finally let someone in.

Keaper

30 January - 7:00pm

Pensive lyrics, melodic instrumentation and an introspective atmosphere are Keaper’s canvas, and splashes of visual flair blend with this Melbourne act’s immersive, dreamy, heady music. Join Keaper on a balmy sunset float in their meditative musical style and let your worries wash away. Ahh.

Tig Lieschke

30 January - 8:00pm

Conveying her innermost thoughts through potent, emotionally-charged lyrics layered over acoustic pop melodies, Tash personifies her problems in order to face them, and uses her cathartic writing style to lay it all on the table. Her confessional alt-pop anthem is a documentary of self-discovery after time away from her beloved mic.

Raria

6 February - 6:00pm

Dealing with the emotional whirlwind of seeing an ex-partner move on with someone new, RARIA’s glistening vocal melodies soar over her track’s bouncing melodies, injecting a playfully bold attitude into her unique brand of oozy, guitar-driven, nostalgic, eclectic pop. Energised, excited and empathetic, RARIA is poised to make a dynamic mark on Australian music.

Dumb Whales

6 February - 7:00pm

A broodingly intense live act fusing the melodic sensibility of 60s British Invasion with the dynamism and dark energy of 90s grunge, with powerhouse rhythmics dissecting love, lust, friendship and murder. Dumb Whales will play your heartstrings like a guitar. Pull on your old The Kinks top and wail into a hairbrush with them.

Imogen Spendlove

6 February - 8:00pm

Melbourne-based vocalist, producer and songwriter, Imogen is a regular singer for Homegrown – musical theatre by Australian Artists, though her own sound is a blend of pop and R&B that explores different perspectives on love, loss and living. Her debut track, Devices, a collaboration with Melbourne producer Raymos, is out now on Spotify and Apple Music. Imogen is currently studying Interactive Composition at the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music.
