The Push is Turning 30 and Bringing Back Victoria’s Longest Running All-Ages Event Push Over to Celebrate!

This November, Victoria’s leading youth music organisation The Push celebrates its 30th anniversary by bringing Victoria’s longest running all-ages event ‘Push Over’ back to Federation Square, Melbourne for one special night on Saturday 24 November.

Happening as a part of Melbourne Music Week, this free, all-ages party features an incredible line-up of Australian artists including Allday, Ali Barter, Ruby Fields and Kian plus special guest performances from Push Over alumni Jebediah, Spiderbait and Something for Kate.

The Push is a Victorian youth music organisation that delivers a range of programs and events that are relevant and responsive to Victoria’s future music industry leaders and audiences. For over 30 years, The Push’s programs and events have engaged more than 700,000 young people across Victoria, with the organisation’s alumni including some of Australia’s most prominent figures in the contemporary music industry.

Push Over was Victoria’s longest running all-ages music festival. Spanning over two decades at Sidney Myer Music Bowl, Luna Park and Abbotsford Convent, the annual festival was instrumental in fostering all-ages audiences, as well as kick-starting the careers of hundreds of Australian artists including Silverchair, The Avalanches, The Amity Affliction, British India, Something for Kate, The Living End, Spiderbait, Killing Heidi and Jebediah.

“We are super hyped to bring back Push Over for this one-off special event. Across Victoria, we are seeing more young people attending all-ages events than ever before and The Push is ready to foster and support our next generation of live music audiences.” – Kate Duncan, CEO, The Push
