Melbourne's music scene is the focus of a new exhibition. Brace yourself for a boogie at the Music, Melbourne and Me exhibition

The RMIT University Gallery is hosting a very special exhibition celebrating 40 years of Australia's rich music history, and now is your chance to experience the magic for yourself.

Music, Melbourne and Me: 40 years of Mushroom and Melbourne's Popular Music Culture is showing now at the RMIT Gallery until February 22 next year, near holiday accommodation such as Mantra on Russell.

If you're a music fan and you're wondering what to do in Melbourne, this is definitely one exhibit worth checking out as it features music, songs, posters, costumes, memorabilia and much more from the last four decades of popular music.

Melbourne has a vibrant recording industry that has spawned plenty of chart topping artists and bands over the years, and its live music scene is famed throughout Australia for being second to none.


"From next year, you can also catch a variety of talks on everything from rock fashion to the punk scene in Melbourne as part of the exhibition. Head down to the RMIT Gallery to get a unique insight into Melbourne's vibrant music culture.


Now is your chance to get up close and personal with items never before seen in public, from the private collections of Kylie Minogue, Split Enz and Crowded House and much more. What's even better is that Melbourne, Music and Me is a completely free exhibition, so you can wander around the displays without fear of making a dent in your wallet.

As well as taking you down memory lane with stories of Melbourne's most successful artists, the exhibit features an extensive look into the history behind Mushroom Records, the biggest independent record label in Australia.

It has been curated by RMIT Gallery Director Suzanne Davies and RMIT Bachelor of Arts Program Director Kipps Horn, with input from Mushroom Group Chief Executive Officer and founder Michael Gudinski.
