The basics

Attending a concert at the Forum Melbourne is a quintessential experience for music fans. Shows take place at the venue’s two different stages. The Forum I is the main stage and its lavish design is unmistakable, complete with an original 1920's mosaic floor, marble columns, and a sky-blue ceiling dotted with twinkling lights. Upstairs, the Forum II is a smaller, more intimate venue often used for private events and screenings.
