Brighton Up Bar has been through a number of incarnations over the years, more recently though it’s been established as a home and breeding ground for local musos. Situated in the heart of Sydney’s Oxford Street, it’s one of the few dedicated live music venues with a smaller capacity, ideal for up-and-comers or interstate acts attempting to break into the Sydney scene. Over the past three years the venue have played host to a number of Australia’s finest acts, including Courtney Barnett, Violent Soho, Gang Of Youths, Bad//Dreems, Dune Rats, Holy Holy, Palms, The Peep Tempel, The Growl, Hockey Dad, Montaigne and many, many more.

Brighton Up has always and will always strive to bring you “Tomorrow’s Music Today”
