Celebrate the best of Latin culture all weekend in Coburg
Delve into Melbourne’s rich Latin presence in this festival dedicated to the music, food and cultural celebrations of countries as diverse as Argentina, Chile, Mexico, Cuba and Spain. Expect hip-shaking Salsa, free dance lessons, Chilean street food, craft vendors and DJs once the sun goes down.
Head to this historic Pentridge in Coburg and get set for some cracking live music: we're talking bands as diverse as classic salsa act Quarter Street to cumbia/punk/reggae three-piece The New Monos. The passion of Flamenco will come to life with Corazon Loco.
Naturally, all that dancing will make you hungry. Luckily, the street food stalls will range from Colombia to Mexico to Spain, and two fully licensed bars will quench your thirst.
Obviously no consideration was given to the people who live here. The stench of the food, the thick smoke, the cars blocking our garage access and the drunks in the gutter complete with broken bottles.... I hope the organisers will find a non residential area next time
