You can expect a musical celebration for all the senses, when the annual Darebin Music Feast kicks off its 2018 season this Thursday, October 18. The festival's ringing in its 22nd edition with a whopping 120 parties, gigs and industry events, showcasing venues all across this vibrant pocket of Melbourne's north.

Unfolding across ten jam-packed days, the program launches with a Darebin Arts Centre opening party brimming with girl power. You'll catch a screening of powerful film Her Sound, Her Story, exploring the experiences of women in the Australia music industry, before settling in for an evening of art and music, headlined by legendary ladies Alice Skye, Girl Zone and Jesswar.

Family-friendly daytime gig Sonic aGender: Shake the Tree descends on the Thornbury Bowls Club on October 21, dishing up sounds from the likes of The Pink Tiles and Ally Boom Boom & The Cool Bananas, along with an old-school sausage sizzle and meat tray raffles.

An Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander music showcase hits the Northcote Town Hall on October 27, with a lineup that includes Bricky B, Maylene Slater Burns, Drmngnow and more, while on October 19, Jen Cloher delivers a keynote focused on ideas of gender, songwriting and wall breaking.

And this year's Feast Films series celebrates some of music's most extraordinary women, as the Thornbury Picture House shines the spotlight on iconic female-centric flicks like The Punk Singer, PATTI CAKE$ and 20 Feet from Stardom.
