Section 8, Melbourne's original shipping container bar, is clocking up an impressive 12 years of life. And it's not letting the milestone pass without a proper knees-up, in the form of a free five-day Easter long weekend party.
From March 29 until April 2, the famed CBD beer garden will become celebration central, playing host to a huge lineup of 28 great musical acts, with each day's sets curated by a different guest selector or local label.
The bar will open at 12pm every day, with live music acts kicking off at 5pm on Thursday. Entry is free across the whole weekend, and gets you you front row seats to Melbourne-based favourites like Rui, Chiara Kickdrum, Salvador Ricardo, Chris NG and A13, as well as international guests like Blaze The Emperor and Smutlee.
Also on board for the al fresco festivities are our mates at Hendrick's Gin, Mornington Peninsula Brewery, Monkey Shoulder and Sailor Jerry.
This is one twelfth birthday party you don't want to miss.
