“The coming series of Port Fairy Spotlight Sessions will be hosting a great line-up of firm favourites and new artists selected for the 2018 festival next March. The idea has been knocking around for a while and we’re delighted to have found the right home at MEMO Music Hall. We love the idea of presenting a very mini Port Fairy in the premier city for live music. We see it as a special treat just down the street for about half our festival fans – who are metros! There will be surprises galore, great music and fun to be had.” – Jamie McKew
