Embrace emotion at this two-day music and arts event in Footscray.

Returning for its second year, Sad by Sad West is a community focused festival that's all about embracing emotion in both music and life. It's taking things back to basics and helping locals to recognise and appreciate their immediate surroundings and the artists that occupy it. Presented by Lesstalk Records and Papaiti Records, the self proclaimed fringe festival is geared toward connecting the community through events that showcase shared ideas and values through art and music.

The two-day Melbourne event will take over two Footscray venues on Friday, April 28 and Saturday, April 29. For the festival's first night, The Night Heron, will be rocked by a huge range of talented Aussie artists, including Allison Gallagher, and Superdevf. For the second night, the party will head on over to The Reverence Hotel where Foley, Diploid and Phillip Hall will be among the ten-act lineup. The artists will perform across different genres and mediums to portray artistic thought in a new light.
