What is MOTH?

Music on the Hill – or MOTH – brings singer-songwriters and bands to listening audiences on the Mornington Peninsula.

Presenting a variety of national and international touring and recording artists and bands who are often supported by the best local talent, MOTH is a venue with a difference. It features a capacity of 100, an intimately comfortable atmosphere, excellent sound quality and lighting – all ensuring that the music is the focus.

The organisers have created a welcoming and friendly environment where accomplished singer-songwriters and bands perform to music lovers in an intimate setting. They aim to develop a warm, social atmosphere and nurture a genuine music club feel.

MOTH is held monthly (and sometime twice-monthly) – usually on the first Friday of every month at various venues including art galleries, wineries, churches and halls.

Tickets prices vary from around $30 -$50 per show. MOTH has a membership scheme where members receive a $5 discount per show. Tickets can be purchased here. MOTH memberships can be purchased here.

MOTH is hosted by and supports Red Hill sporting clubs and proceeds go towards the clubs, the artists, technical crew and the hiring of equipment on the night.

MOTH acknowledges and pays respect to the Bunurong/Boon Wurrung people, the Traditional Custodians of the land we meet on.
