Coopers are teaming up with some of their favourite pubs around the country to host weekly Live Loud & Local events for the foreseeable future. Myf Warhurst and Joel Creasey are hosting the series, having formed a winning partnership as Australia’s Eurovision commentators.

Coopers has teamed up with Live Nation Australasia to secure some of the best names in Australian music for the virtual entertainment series. Live Loud & Local will also feature appearances from a range of A-List comedians and chefs.

A different pub will take over hosting duties for each event, streaming the performances via their Facebook feed. Participating venues include Leonard’s House of Love in Melbourne, Coopers’ Original Ale House in Adelaide, The Sandbar in Perth, and The Northern in Byron Bay. Venues in Sydney and Brisbane will be announced soon.

“From the talented musicians, to the weekly quiz masters, and of course the pubs we love, we hope Live Loud and Local brings a smile to faces all over Australia,” said Coopers’ managing director, Dr Tim Cooper.

Coopers are promising two Live Loud & Local events every week. The fun begins this Friday, April 24 at 8pm, with Warhurst and Creasey hosting via the Coopers Facebook page. Australian hip hop favourite ILLY is headlining what’s feted as a “stellar line up of live acts.” Masterchef guest judge Shannon Bennett is also on board. He’ll be showing viewers how to make the preeminent pub grub staple, fish and chips.
