Get up close and personal with 10 of Australia’s most creative musicians at the MCA.

We’ve teamed up again with Dual Plover to present the second round of Up close and personal, a series of physically distanced contemporary sound events like you’ve never seen before.

Each 3 hour program will feature 2 musical acts, each playing for one and a half hours with a collaborative segue at the midway point. Entry will be staggered with a rotating audience experiencing a unique 20-minute experience only 1.5 metres away from some of Australia’s most innovative musicians. Performers include Eric Avery, Graham King, Shoeb Ahmad, Nicola Morton, Matt Earle, Loose-y Crunché, Papaphilia, Jim Denley, Monica Brooks, Laura Altman, Garry Bradbury and Phantom Chips.

Whip out your phone to livestream the event and share it on your socials using the hashtag #mcaupcloseandpersonal. The content captured will be compiled for an online audience.
