MOTH Music on the hill


Throughout 2016, the Red Hill based community event Music on the Hill or MOTH will continue to host well known names from the music industry including Rob Snarski (Jan 1), David Bridie (5 February), Sally Seltmann (International Womens’ Day MOTH, 4 March) and Mick Thomas in July and legendary singer songwriter Archie Roach in September. 

Also appearing will be plenty of talented newcomers and every MOTH will be opened by a Peninsula based act as MOTH is committed to showcasing local artists.

In September MOTH celebrated its first birthday. More than 14 national and local artists returned to help celebrate and perform three songs each to a packed Pavilion in full party mood. A highlight was Lisa Miller and Shane O’Mara joined by local guitar hero Charlie Owen for a rendition of Lucinda Williams’ classic Joy. Funds raised helped to buy badly needed equipment and provided deserving Dromana College student Lucas Roller with a music scholarship.

Music on the Hill is hosted by the Red Hill sports clubs. Proceeds go to the artists, equipment hire and local community initiatives. Visit to find out more.
