Darebin Music Feast

Darebin is celebrating their 20th Music Feast anniversary

Every year, Melbourne’s thriving music community comes together to celebrate songwriting and music at the Darebin Music Feast, lighting up High Street in Northcote, and further north. This year’s Music Feast will present over 100 events, in more than 10 venues over 10 days across Darebin in Melbourne's north, showcasing and celebrating our diverse music community with an eclectic and electrifying lineup of events.
From jazz to rock to folk and everything in between, the Darebin Music Feast will see a variety of community music groups performing in local halls, alongside touring international acts in some of Melbourne’s live music venues.

Here are some killer festival highlights:

A Kick-Ass Opening Party (October 29): A curated day of free, genre smashing activities and festivities in an abandoned bingo hall! Live interactive art and music including the number one barbecue concept act The Burnt Sausages. Preston Market.
