The event – entitled Mushroom Free For All – will feature live performances from Adalita, Bleeding Knees Club, DZ Deathrays, Owl Eyes, Stonefield, SURES and World’s End Press. The incredible line-up will take to the stage at Melbourne’s Thousand £ Bend next Wednesday 6th February.

The only way to obtain tickets to the 18+ event is by entering a ballot system on Mushroom’s new Facebook page,, which will close at 8.59pm on Tuesday 5th February. Winners will be notified in staggered announcements on Monday and Tuesday nights with each receiving a double pass.

The event signifies the launch of the new-look Mushroom, and is the first in a series of planned Free For All shows in other cities. The Mushroom Group, spearheaded by Michael and Matt Gudinski, has continued its perpetual upward trajectory and is now Australia’s largest independent music and entertainment group. Currently it houses iconic Australian brands including Liberation Music, Ivy League, Illusive, Liberator, I Oh You, Wunderkind, Frontier Touring, Mushroom Music Publishing, Love Police ATM, Mushroom Marketing, Roundhouse Entertainment, Mushroom Pictures, Premier Artists, Harbour Agency and Artist Voice.
