Colour was one of Melbourne’s most popular underground clubs, but sadly the venue will be closing down towards the end of 2022.
The news came yesterday from the venue’s management via a social media post that reads: “Unfortunately, due to the ever-increasing financial pressures in our industry, the operation of our venue has become unviable.”
The venue opened in October 2019 and from its beginnings had to fight to survive due to Covid and its associated lockdowns, but despite all its challenges the venue still managed to become a hotspot for Melbourne’s music scene.
Not only did it have regular DJ sets from the likes of Toni Yotzi, Moopie, Andy Garvey and Sleep D, it also had a band room and that catered for many different genres.
Its 24-hour licence and Funktion-One sound system made it one of Australia’s best party locations and regulars in Melbourne will be sad to see it go.
Colour’s social media post announcing the closure continued to read: “We built the club in 2019 as a means to continue to support the amazing local dance and live music community, and we are proud to have played a small role in filling that space,” then continues. “It’s been incredible to work with such an amazing amount of new talent, and to watch many of our peers grow into the amazing artists they are today.”
Going out in style, the venue will run a busy schedule across the next six weeks, including parties hosted by Lucid, Marination, Bellaqueo, Faith Invention and more.
