After turning last year's celebration of Brisbane's inner west into a 21st birthday shindig, the Caxton Street Festival has big shoes to fill with its 2016 event. Of course, if there's any street party that's up to the task, it's this annual Paddington party. Think food, music and a good time all round.
On the culinary side of things, the festival has come a long way since it also included the words "seafood" and "wine" in its name, as those with long memories might recall. There's still plenty of fresh ocean bounty to feast on, as well as vino to wash it down with; however, street eats and pop-up bars will also showcase Caxton Street's numerous purveyors of food and beverages.
When it comes to tunes, there's something for everyone, regardless of what style of music is your thing. The Last Dinosaurs, Urthboy, The Creases, Cub Sport, Stonefield, Pocket Love, The Mad Marachi, Brad Butcher, Nicky Nightime from Van She, Tim Fuchs, Pat Sweeney, Alex Millington, DJ Mumbles and DJ Jagwoh will blast their sounds from multiple stages. Yep, you'll be rockin' the CBD-adjacent suburbs.
