Roundhouse: more than music

INXS, Foo Fighters, Green Day, Twenty One Pilots, Sum 41, Queens of the Stone Age—the list goes on. Since 1961, Roundhouse has played host to the world’s greatest acts and its $32 million refurbishment last year has
put it on the map as a leading unique venue for conferences, dinners and special events.

Reopened in March 2018, the venue can host gigs of up to 2,200, conferences for 900 and dinners for 500 in its main room. Two bars, eight breakout spaces and an outdoor courtyard give way to event organisers seeking a varied space for concurrent social events and presentations. The venue hosts a diverse client base ranging from headline bands such as Triple J Hottest 100 winners Ocean Alley, National Health Promotion Charity, The Heart Foundation and multinational brands like Ubisoft Entertainment.

“We’re overwhelmed by the positive response we’ve seen from the events industry since reopening,” Jason Lyons, Head of Venue and Events at the Roundhouse said.

“We’re excited for another landmark year ahead. We are prioritising our environmental responsibility and client feedback by implementing sustainable processes and building a culture of awareness. The light rail will begin operating from the CBD to our doors in 2020, opening up opportunities for event organisers who preference city-based venues to consider us as an easily accessible option to offer their guests a unique event experience.”
