The Loaded Dog Hotel plays host to some of the best Australian and international musical acts on the 3rd Saturday of the month, Febuary to November and on NYE.

Over the past years we have welcomed performances from Amber Lawrence, Luke O'Shea, Felicity, Rob Wilson, Steave Eales, Nicki Gillis, Sweeney & Kileen, Travis Collins, Darren Coggan, Mississippi Shakedown, Victoria Baillie, Camille & Stuie French, Misten, Wayne Ryder, Col Finley, Dale Juner and Roo Arcus to name a few. Just check out the faces below and we're sure you'll recognise a few!

The Loaded Dog is quickly becoming an institution for bands traveling between
Sydney and Melbourne providing an intimate country music venue where the gigs are friendly and relaxed.

A good night out should involve friends, a few drinks and some top quality live music; and that's what you'll find at the Loaded Dog!
