AWNY’s 2022 Aussie Concert Guide: Live Music is Back!

As Aussies we know we have an incredibly talented and varied locally grown music scene. The last couple of years have deprived us of seeing many of our favorite artists on stage but that is finally changing! Now that Australia has relaxed its travel restrictions, Aussie artists are back on tour and a number of them are heading our way!

From indie favorites to true Aussie legends, it will be one busy summer in New York for Australian music and here are some of the artists we cannot wait to see live!
