Darebin Music Feast 2019
Over 85 parties, gigs and film screenings held all across this vibrant pocket of Melbourne's north
You can expect a musical celebration for all the senses, when the annual Darebin Music Feast kicks off its 2019 season on Sunday, October 20. The festival's ringing in its 23rd edition with a whopping 85 parties, gigs and industry events, showcasing 20 different venues all across this vibrant pocket of Melbourne's north.
Unfolding across eight jam-packed days, the program launches with a free three-stage opening party brimming with girl power. Running across Bar 303, Little Eastment Street car park and Northcote Social Club, the party will feature 15 acts including Alice Skye, Emma Donovan and the Putbacks, Jess Riberio and Kee'ahn.
Elsewhere on the program, live music and environmental activism event Green Noise will take over The Thornbury Theatre on Sunday, October 27; celtic tunes and whiskey tasting flights will combine at Buck Mulligan's Wednesday night jam session; and you can join in a holy celebration on Monday with Northcote Social Club's Monday Night Mass.
You can also head along to one of two film festivals — one is a brand new festival of music videos at Thornbury Picture House, the other features music-themed films created by La Trobe University students — a musical poetry slam evening and a theatrical masquerade ball.
We've only just scratched the surface of what's going on during the jam-packed week, so if you'd like to check out the full program, head to the Darebin Music Feast website.
