About us


Lust for Live is a community-driven live music event series in the city of Dubbo, NSW, Australia.

It is an initiative of the Songwriters and Original Musicians Association Dubbo Inc. - SOMAD.

SOMAD is an incorporated association founded by local Dubbo musos with the following aims:

  1. raise the profile of original music artists in the Dubbo community and region (awareness);
  2. work towards positioning Dubbo as a thriving 'Music City' (the scene); and
  3. support, advocate for and grow Dubbo's original music scene and its artists and music supporters (events and artist development).



We need your help to achieve our goals. By joining you can help us create a groundswell of support for original local music in Dubbo.

There are two types of SOMAD membership - including  a freebie for music lovers who just want to show their support and stay informed.
