Sweet Oblivion 

Sweet Oblivion events, held at the HQ Gig Space, have provided valuable live performance experience for Perth’s up-and-coming bands and performers, as well as offering regular all-ages events for Perth’s under age live music fans.


Held on the first Friday of every month, these gigs are booked by the Youth Events Officer and team of young people who are directly connected to the all ages Perth local music scene. We team up and coming acts with established bands to learn from and network with industry professionals, including sound engineers, performing artists and songwriters, managers and booking agents and online media content creators.

This gig is in partnership with Act Belong Commit, City of Vincent, West Australian Music (WAM) and RTRFM.
