After a successful inaugural event last year, Eat Your Heart Out Liverpool will return for another street celebration of music, art and food showcasing the rejuvenated city centre. This year, Railway Street will be coloured with public art, carnival games, and stalls of designer and handmade goods presented by the Westies Markets.
Local businesses along the strip will become part of the festivities, beside more of Liverpool’s favourite eateries in food truck form, and a curated music and performance program of local and international acts.
Australian dance crew Shaun Parker and Company will step up to the mainstage for multiple performances, where they’ll show of a routine inspired by Western Sydney. Their bold bouts of choreography will be interspersed with sets by artists including Manutabu, who’ll get the good times rolling with funk and R’n’b, followed by the groove-rock melodies of Gang of Brothers and an amalgamation of jazz, reggae, hip hop and afro-funk sounds from nine-piece ensemble the Strides.
The Museum of Contemporary Art will also be hosting an evening of art, music and performance for young adults at the Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre from 5-8pm
For the food-focused market browsers, there’ll be fried chicken from the Dirty Bird stall and the Berlin Bangers’ mobile will top their mighty wursts with your favourite combo of mustard and crisp fried onions. Move onto Thai, Lebanese, Vietnamese, Filipino and Fijian flavours for a menu as diverse as the Western Sydney community.
