Set in the Kings Domain Gardens this hugely popular summertime venue hosts everything from the beats of Hardwell to the indie folk of Mumford & Sons, from the rock of Tame Impala to the sounds of Chet Faker to the energy of Florence & The Machine.

It is also home to Carols by Candlelight and MSO's free summertime concert series. Capacity varies, depending on event type.

History
The Sidney Myer Music Bowl was named after Russian immigrant Simcha Baevski [later changed his name to Sidney Myer] who arrived in Australia in 1899, aged 20, without a penny to his name.

Despite impoverished beginnings, Myer became one of Australia's most successful businessmen, and a philanthropist. On his death in 1934 a portion of his estate established a fund that would guarantee the Myer family's continuing connection with the community.

When it was built, at a cost of about $500,000, Melbourne's icon of outdoor entertainment won prizes for its unique design - thanks to the vision of architect Barry Patten.

The Sidney Myer Music Bowl is located in the gardens of the King's Domain. If you are driving to the venue the Arts Centre car park is a short walk from the Bowl with entry from the rear off Sturt or Kavanagh Streets. Otherwise it is a short walk from Flinders Street Station or a tram ride up St Kilda Road.
