Sydney Road Street Party
Time Out says
This ever-popular street party kicks of Brunswick Music Festival with a real bang
If you only do one thing for this year's Brunswick Music Festival, then make it the famous opening party. This mammoth one-day music festival sprawls across six stages down Sydney Road (and five venues), and will feature a bunch of musicians playing rock, hip-hop, reggae, soul, jazz, gospel and everything in between.
Hop between stages and duck into venues including Stay Gold, the Brunswick Mechanics Institute (which is also the festival hub), the Penny Black, the Brunswick Green and the Retreat Hotel, who will all be getting in on the action.
Artists to pencil into your schedule include Lady Lash, the Burnt Sausages (in costume as usual we presume), Kahlua Breeze, U-Bahn, Slush and the Mamas.
You can also expect plenty of food, a First Nations artist market over at Blak Dot Gallery, a plant sale at the Mechanics Institute, and Triple R DJs.
