Courtney Barnett Announced for MTV Unplugged Melbourne

MTV Australia today confirmed Courtney Barnett will return home as the next act to perform in the critically acclaimed MTV Unplugged Melbourne concert series in 2019.

The Melbourne-based singer/songwriter will become the next Australian artist to be featured on MTV Unplugged Melbourne, joining Gang of Youths, Amy Shark, DMA’S and The Rubens, who have all taken to the stage with stellar stripped-back performances.

Barnett said, “I’m looking forward to coming home and playing MTV Unplugged Melbourne with my wonderful band and a few very special guests. It’s been fun to re-arrange my songs and sometimes revisit where they started as demos. Gonna try a few new things. In my house growing up we had Nirvana Unplugged and Clapton Unplugged on repeat and I discovered a whole new world of music through the cover songs”.

The intimate fan event will be filmed in front of a live audience on Tuesday 22nd October at Howler in Brunswick.  Register for tickets at
