Artist information

Riot Baby is a punk band for kids, by kids and parents. They make fast and loud music for little people, and the big people that take them to gigs.

Formed in late-2019 when they began making punk versions of Australian kids books, Riot Baby began writing songs about the issues facing kids and parents navigating late-stage capitalism, pandemics, disasters, bullies, and big feelings.

Featuring some of the Melbourne music scene’s youngest veterans, Riot Baby has played the Brunswick Music Festival, St Kilda Festival, the Northcote Theatre, Family Jams, the Brunswick Ballroom, The Old Bar, and many other venues and festivals around Melbourne.

Riot Baby also love to curate line-ups to present original, Australian music for families. They created the family friendly gig series Family Jams, which has presented 8 line-ups around Melbourne, focusing on programming diverse artists from a wide range of genres from punk to jazz fusion, Chinese guzheng, and pop.
