Liveability and creativity: the case for Melbourne music precincts

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Popular music has always been important to the realization of the creative or cultural city concept, evident in the self-branding of music cities as diverse as Berlin, Austin, Vienna and Liverpool. Melbourne is examined in this article as a self-proclaimed Australian capital of culture and music city in three ways: the forms in which popular music has been positioned as a central driver of economic and social liveability ; the role of music (sub)cultures and geographies in broader cultural scenes; and recent arguments for music precincts to be formally recognized within city and state cultural planning.
