The Smokehouse is a community focused live music and media venue situated in Ipswich, recently celebrating its 1st birthday. During the day the venue hosts grant-funded workshops for people from challenging backgrounds, and in the evening it becomes a live music venue with an open and eclectic program curated through hiring out to bands and promoters at nominal costs.

With over 100 original gigs in the first year, artists included DJ Format & Abdominal, Rainbow Girls, Rich Quick, War Waves and many other up and coming bands from around the country. Based at South Street Studios, the building is shared with a recording studio and a radio station, creating a unique and creative environment within the local community.
