Time Out says

Australia’s largest celebration of African music and culture returns to Melbourne

Transport yourself to Africa as Federation Square comes alive with the music, culture and cuisines of this diverse continent. You’ll find tons of family-friendly entertainment to enjoy including dance, fashion, DJs, spoken word and drumming with over 35 African countries and community organisations represented. Of course it's not a festival without some food, so expect traditional street food from Egypt to Ethiopia, Ghana to Nigeria: think injera and curry, plus delicious sweet treats. There’ll also be market stalls selling a swag of traditional wares. 

More than 40,000 people are expected to gather for the sixth year of this massive annual celebration of diversity and harmony.
