There’s a lot going on at the Forum Theatre this September. Today, we’ll be focusing on two Australian acts, in particular: SAFIA and The Jungle Giants.
So, you’ve beaten the crowd and landed yourself a couple of tickets to one (or both) of these highly anticipated shows… next up, you’ll want to organise your Forum Theatre parking.
Luckily for you, you’ve come to the right place – with a one-minute walk separating the Forum from our Flinders St parking garage, we’re the best place to leave your car if you’re attending a show at one of Melbourne’s most famous venues!
What’s more, we also offer a discount when you book online in advance!
With options like that, why would you want to choose anywhere else for Forum Theatre parking?
Kick off your spring with SAFIA
When: Wednesday 7th and Thursday 8th September
Where: Forum Theatre
Based out of Canberra, SAFIA is one of Australia’s biggest names in electronica.
Blending electronic beats with a distinctly low-key pop sound, it’s little wonder that SAFIA is rising in prominence in the world of music.
Even if electronic isn’t really your scene, you’ve probably still heard at least one song from SAFIA – their debut album Eternal peaked at #2 on the ARIAs and shot right to the top of iTunes.
With a total of 140 million streams and counting, they’re hot property. Their recent performance alongside Peking Duck at Coachella in America just confirms this – we fully expect their Melbourne show to sell out (if it hasn’t already)!
If you’ve decided to go and see SAFIA play then you while you’re booking your seat at the show you should also book your Forum Theatre parking!
The Jungle Giants – only at the Forum Theatre
When: Thursday 12th and Friday 13th September
Where: Forum Theatre

A mere week later, you’ll be able to catch The Jungle Giants live at the Forum!
And for the Australian leg of The Heavy Hearted Tour, they’ll be touching down in Melbourne following a series of sold-out shows in both Europe and America.
It’s hard to describe exactly what The Jungle Giants sound like. Some songs are reminiscent of early 2000s alt rock, with the traditional guitar, bass and drums playing energetic, quirky indie tunes.
Others feature a mix of inventive elements: Heavy Hearted, for example, features otherworldly vocals, dashes of electronic for flavour, and a bassline played in part on a tubulum – essentially a xylophone made of pipes.
Either way, you’re in for an experience!
‘Heavy Hearted’ (the tour’s namesake) is the first single they’ve released since they stole our hearts and our ears back in 2017 with their album Quiet. That’s close to two years of metaphorical radio silence – who knows what they’ve been cooking up in that time?!
Their first show in Melbourne on Tuesday, 13th September sold out quickly – given their rapid rise, it’s no surprise either.
Due to overwhelming demand, they’ve added a second show on Monday 12th September.
If the first show is anything to go off however, you’ll want to move fast and snap up a ticket now – it looks like this one is set to sell out, too!
