Every year, the Brunswick Music Festival (March 5-19) welcomes a diverse line-up of musicians to perform in spaces across the creative hub of the inner north. This year, soul musician, broadcaster and DJ Chelsea Wilson has taken the helm as music programmer. Thanks to her, the festival's acts hail from all over the world, playing everything from West Saharan desert blues to New Orleans jazz to Flamenco, and everything in between. Naturally, local musicians will also come to the fore, with Melbourne music labels throwing parties and artists performing in rarely-seen locations around Brunswick.
