Tash Sultana will record their appearance on MTV Unplugged Melbourne early next month.


Tash Sultana is set to appear as the latest artist to take to the MTV Unplugged stage, with the acclaimed broadcaster today announcing the Melbourne musician as the focus of their next edition.

Announced this morning, Sultana’s set is the sixth to feature on MTV Unplugged Melbourne, following on from the likes of Gang of Youths, Amy Shark, DMA’S, The Rubens, and Courtney Barnett, who all took to the stage to share stellar stripped back performances.

“To be able to play an MTV Unplugged set is pretty special,” Sultana explains. “It’s something that everyone knows about so I’m really looking forward to being a part of it. Also, to do it in my hometown is a massive bonus.”

“Music and live gigs are part of Melbourne’s DNA, and we’re excited to welcome Tash and the team at MTV to showcase our city its iconic and intimate venues,” adds Visit Victoria CEO Brendan McClements.

While the details regarding the broadcast of Sultana’s set remain unclear at the current time, the performance itself is scheduled to take place on May 4th at iconic Melbourne music venue Chapel Off Chapel.

The appearance on the upcoming episode of MTV Unplugged Melbourne is just another feather in the already-decorated cap of Tash Sultana’s, having just last week taken home the Best Single award at the inaugural Rolling Stone Australia Awards for “Pretty Lady”.

In addition to featuring as the current cover artist of the latest issue of Rolling Stone Australia, Sultana also took home their first number one album for Terra Firma, which was officially released back in February.
