Melbourne’s thriving music community comes together to celebrate songwriting and music at this annual festival
Every year, Melbourne’s music community comes together to celebrate songwriting and music at the Darebin Music Feast, lighting up High Street in Northcote and stretching further north.
This year’s Music Feast will present over 120 events across 11 days in venues across Darebin in Melbourne's north, showcasing and celebrating our diverse music community with an eclectic and electrifying lineup of events.
The program this year will put the spotlight on the long-standing inequalities in the music industry when it comes to sex, gender, cultural diversity, ability and age. Over a third of the festival events are free, more than half are all-ages and many venues and gigs are wheelchair accessible.
The festival kicks off on October 18 with a special screening of Her Sound, Her Story at Darebin Arts Centre. The documentary explores gender bias in the music industry as well as highlighting womens' contribution to music.
Throughout Darebin Music Feast you can expect to hear folk, rock and jazz to rock, hip hop and big band music. On the line-up this year is Jen Cloher, Banoffee, RVG, Hextape, Jaala and Alice Skye just to name a few. For the full list of artists and events visit the Darebin Music Feast website.
