Keep up with the latest music tours and festival news here.

With a music stage set amongst large trees and manicured garden beds (perfect for outdoor performances in the sun), punters are encouraged to pack a picnic, lay out the rug and enjoy performances from the likes of Suspects, Lucy Head and Phillipa McQuinn, with more to be announced.

Just across the road from the Geelong Waterfront, getting to the shows is easy, whether you’re travelling from Melbourne, Regional Victoria or within Geelong itself. There is plenty of parking available at the Gardens too, making life that little bit easier for attendees.

While the event is principally a music event, it is also a fabulous opportunity to sample some of Geelong’s culinary delights. With shows starting at 2pm, there is ample time to have lunch at any one of the terrific bars and restaurants located in the CBD, or mozy on down to the Waterfront prior and bring takeaway to the show.

The Jazz Soirees Summer Series will take to the Geelong Botanic Gardens on Saturday, February 5, 12 & 19 2022 from 2pm – 4pm. Head here for more information.
