Merritts, a natural amphitheatre and perfect location for th shows

Thredbo Music Series is bringing live music back to the mountains this summer, with a host of artists set to let it rock from the mountain top! The free concerts will be held over three Saturdays at the top of Merritts Gondola in the Merritts Music Bowl and are all about bringing back the good times with family and friends and listening to top-notch musicians.

The Merritts Music Bowl is Thredbo’s new home of live music. Located at Merritts Mountain House, guests travel up Australia’s only alpine gondola, Merritts Gondola, to reach the natural amphitheatre boasting stunning views of the Snowy Mountains.

After a day of mountain biking and hiking, guests can soak up the live music whilst relaxing on BYO picnic blankets and camping chairs while enjoying an array of delicious food and beverage offerings.

Kicking things off this Saturday 22 January will be The Delta Riggs. Fresh off the back of their sold-out Australian Modern Pressure tour — the bands critically acclaimed 4th album — The Delta Riggs charged into 2020, supporting Sticky Fingers across a widespread New Zealand Arena tour. They’ve promised to deliver their enchanting, disco fuelled form of ‘Brit-Hop’ and fan favourites from across all releases.

The second act of the series will be the Melbourne band Kingswood. Since the ARIA-nominated Microscopic Wars put Kingswood on the national radar in 2014, the band has had countless sold-out tours, won ARIA Gold Accreditations and song writing awards, toured with AC/DC and Aerosmith and created a total of five eclectic and critically acclaimed albums to date. Kingwood will take to the stage on 19 February.

The series will close with the Aussie crowd favourite, Pete Murray, who will descend on Thredbo on 12 March. He’ll be bringing brand new music in the shape of his forthcoming single release, Hold Me Steady, which will be released early this year. Pete Murray is a set not to be missed, featuring new tracks and some of his classic hits.

Events and Partnerships Manager, Damian Goninan said he is excited to be bringing live music back to Thredbo.

“We are very thrilled to have launched the Thredbo Music Series this summer. Hosting such a strong line-up of incredible artists in a new and unique venue is raising the bar in the world of Australian concerts,” Mr Goninan said.

Thredbo Music Series concerts are free events with a valid lift pass. Merritts Mountain House is a licensed venue selling food and alcohol.

The event will be run in compliance with current NSW Health COVID-19 restrictions and in accordance with Thredbo’s COVID-19 Operating Plan that has been developed under the advice of NSW Health.
