Pride of our Footscray Community Bar is a diverse, colourful and friendly bar located in the heart of Footscray, and one of the prime destinations for music in the western suburbs of Melbourne. Opening its doors as a colourful and friendly bar aiming to celebrate the best of the neighbourhood and the best of humanity, Pride has played host to a variety of bands, drag queens and drag kings, comedy shows, choirs, trivia, bingo and more.
As a premiere music destination in Footscray, Pride caters to a wide range of artists and bands, featuring rock, punk, jazz, techno, house and hip-hop. We’ve brought in both emerging and popular acts such as Divebar Youth, Brixton Alley, Stimpies, Mylk, The Mamas, Benjamin Trillado, CLAIM, Parkville and Redferrie, and will see acts such as Drunk Mums and Dumb Punts gracing the stage throughout 2021.
Pride of our Footscray is part of Footscray, a bustling, diverse hub for exciting events, festivals, food and drink, and of course, the western suburbs’ emerging music scene.
Setting Friday nights at Pride apart from everywhere else is amazing music and awesome drag with the delightfully-unapologetic Joslyn Bosoms, bringing drag shows, crowd games, and hilarious, self-deprecating drag emceeing you’ll find nowhere else.
Pride of our Footscray is proudly booked by Exude Bookings, and we’re fans of great music. We’ve booked for Pride since early 2019, hosting incredibly successful gigs over time. Exude has provided stages for over 50 shows promoting more than 200 local artists.
We do the legwork for you, from hand-picking all the artists on the bill, to providing posters, to setting up Facebook events, and more — so you can focus on the music.
Every Friday night, Exude provides quality photography all night long, sent to you shortly after the show for you to make use of as you feel.
Exude Bookings is part of Exude Group, and we’re here so you’re heard.
