Bakehouse Studios 25th Birthday – Leaps and Bounds Festival, 16th July 2016
Bakehouse Studios has survived for 25 years, and along the way has become so much to so many. At this point in history no one could imagine the Bakehouse ceasing to exist because Melbourne’s music and art creatives breathe new life into it every day.
Bakehouse is its history and its present too, and if walls could speak we’d be held enthralled by tales of the early days of the building’s incarnation as a carrier’s business, a factory and then a tailoring business. We’d hear tales of the bands who’ve found inspiration there like The Meanies, Cosmic Psychos and Spiderbait. We’d hear the walls delight in the artworks painted on them by local people, and convey pleasure in the creative juices that well up within their warm, un-corporate-like ramparts.
