Singers’ Lounge

Singers’ Lounge

30 June - 2 July 2023, 4 July - 8 July 2023  |  7:30PM  |  Salamanca Arts Centre: Long Gallery

The Singers’ Lounge is the place for after-hours singalongs, open mic performances and general festival buzz.

Our festival hub, the Singers’ Lounge is open to everyone – patrons, performers and participants.  Since we began, the festival transforms Salamanca Arts Centre’s Long Gallery to become the heart and soul of the festival, where friends – old and new – enjoy scheduled and impromptu performances. It’s inclusive, informal and free of judgement – a welcoming space to sing or sit back in our laid-back lounge.

The lounge is hosted by one of the festival’s best friends, Paul Jarman, as well as a few special guest MC’s to keep the night’s entertainment running and lead a singalong – or two!
Doors open at 7.30pm for door sales, and free entry to all festival participants.

Paul Jarman reflects on some memorable MC moments…

The night when a much loved musical family from Tasmania got up in the chalk board session, mum, dad and their gorgeous three daughters. After a few songs, the audience swept away, they performed Bohemian Rhapsody and somewhere in the middle of it, they forgot how it went. After an awkward few seconds, the entire festival club spontaneously erupted in unison, filling in the missing part for them, in four part harmony of course, saving the moment and setting them on to finish in style.”
