One balmy day this summer, a normally quiet pocket of Abbotsford is set to come alive, as it plays host to a rollicking, tune-filled block party.

On February 2, Duke Street will be putting on quite the show, with resident businesses opening their doors for a series of one-off activations. Enjoy crafty brews and live, local tunes at Moon Dog Brewery, a local design showcase at Hub Furniture, motorbike workshops at Kustom Kommune, freshly roasted coffee courtesy of Bureaux Coffee Roasters, plus plenty more.

You'll also find an assortment of pop-up dining spaces, slinging specialty food and cocktails to fuel the day's fun.

Meanwhile, touring agency Crown Ruler and Melbourne collective Untitled Group — the peeps behind Beyond the Valley, Pitch Music & Arts, Ability Fest — are teaming up to deliver one heck of a music lineup, with a main stage overlooking Yarra Bend bushland and a second making its home in a carpark.

Dishing up a broad range of musical goodness will be USA synth-funk darling Evelyn Champagne King, along with Mondo Freaks, a DJ set from UK legends Floating Points, and London-based selector John Gómez. They'll be joined by a swag of local favourites, including Total Giovanni, Nasty Mars & The Martians, Cassettes For Kids and Brooke Powers.

Duke Street Block Party will run from 12pm–10pm. Pre-sale tickets will be released at 5pm on Thursday, December 20 — signup for them here — with general tickets at 12pm on Friday, December 21.
