Limelight magazine is now online!

The new homepage for fine music and the arts

Take a tour of the new Limelight website. Watch now.

Australia has such an exciting fine music and arts scene, but there has never been a website devoted to it, which is why I am so thrilled to be launching the Limelight site.

This will be a hub for lovers of fine music, a place where you can get the latest news about musicians and music, the reviews of the most exciting new CDs and DVDs, interviews with touring artists – everything our readers are used to getting in the magazine, but in a fresh, constantly renewing format.

ABC Classic FM broadcasts are a big part of what we do at Limelightt, and we\’ve repackaged the ABC Classic FM listings to make them really user-friendly, so it\’s easier to find out when the music you enjoy is being broadcast.

Concertgoers will love our comprehensive Event Finder – , which lists classical music concerts across Australia. So whether you live in Melbourne or Mount Isa, you\’ll be able to find all the performances happening near you. We\’ll also have the latest news on music and musicians from Australia and overseas.

In our Reviews section – , readers can access all our CD, DVD and film reviews – and enjoy audio and video samples of the works. We\’ve also got some terrific blogs from some of Australia\’s most respected musicians, including Guy Noble and Brett Weymark, so readers can get a fascinating insight into what happens behind the scenes in Australian music.

The Limelight website is going to be the new homepage for music and arts lovers: it\’s a site that is not dumbed-down, is full of interesting words, sound and video, and is a true reflection of the country\’s musical and artistic life.

We\’d love to have our readers\’ feedback: you can write your comments on the site, or send an email to

Also, if you\’d like to get weekly updates on what\’s new on the Limelight site, you can register for our newsletter and become part of our community.

If you like fine music and great performances, is your site
