Gigs in Space is a leisurely day of live music by local Tassie artists Ben Salter, Dewayne Everettsmith and Just Flare in a unique waterfront setting where industrial past meets ecological present. Gig-goers will have the whole day to stroll between the venues with time to eat, drink and explore the surprise entertainment that will be dotted around the site. Catering on offer is a variety of food trucks and bars with outdoor dining areas and don’t forget to bring your picnic blanket.

A festival atmosphere with easy-going COVID-safety is the aim of the day. Audience numbers in the two indoor venues will be limited to 100 in each. Gigs run concurrently but in two separate sets, allowing for the venues to be vacated and cleaned before the two audiences swap to catch the other act. The day will culminate in the whole audience coming together (with appropriate distance) in the expansive outdoor space of the Amphitheatre for the headlining act.

Hailed as one of Australia’s best singer/songwriters, Ben Salter will declare The Mill’s Amphitheatre open for business with an outdoor set that headlines Gigs in Space. Like everyone else on the bill, Ben’s been keeping up appearances online during what he calls ‘the current strange times’ and is dead-keen to play to a real flesh-and-blood audience.

Dewayne Everettsmith is an Aboriginal man, descended from both the Aboriginal community of Cape Barren Island and the Gunai/Kurnai people of Victoria, but his music can’t be neatly pigeonholed as Indigenous. It’s been influenced by his heritage, then shaped by his tough early years and love of so many musical styles and great singers.

Indie/folk/rock trio Just Flare are Hannah Lawes (vocals), Zac Jessup (electric guitar) and Tyler Watson (percussion/synth). Based in Northern Tasmania, the group is riding high on the success of its debut album Where the Water’s Deep, music designed to ‘heal the soul’.

Tickets are limited so book soon to get your fix of live music.
