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 100 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.
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.
The centrepiece for the festival is Mana (Sat Oct 21) which is the result of Darebin Councils' Amplify mentoring program of early-career female, trans or non-binary artists who live, work or study in the city of Darebin. The opening night party (Thu Oct 12) will feature Coloured Stone, Shane Howard, Kutcha Edwards and more, while the notorious Reservoir Stomp has been incarnated as the festival's closing party featuring the Fauves and Murray Wiggle and Wally Meanie's Bubblegum Machine.
