Kogarah will be transformed into a bustling outdoor art space as part of a new three-day festival. Un[contained] is set to take over Belgrave Street from Friday, June 4 until Sunday, June 6 with art, performances, food, drinks and music.

From Friday, a series of shipping containers will be situated around Kogarah cotaining pieces from local and international artists, including new artworks from Vivid collaborators ANL Designs, and multi-dimensional light artist Kit Webster. Ariel performers will also take to the sky each night to perform their sky-high acrobatics.

When it comes to food and drink, cult Sydney pop-up eatery Knafeh Bakery will bring its team of bearded bakers and their Jerusalem-style street food to the festival. Knafeh's food trucks are known for drawing huge crowds due to the music and performances from the chefs as much as the food itself. Gelato Messina will also be on hand serving its fan-favourite teats, alongside Noma's Burgers and drinks from Archie Rose.

If you want to get in on the art, Pinot and Picasso paint-and-sip classes will be run across both Saturday and Sunday from 2pm. Tickets for the wine and art classes are $42.50 and pre-booking is recommended.

Festivalgoers sensitive to loud noises or large crowds can attend the festival for a Quiet Hour on Sunday, June 6. The specially reserved hour will run as usual but with less sound, softer lighting and a smaller crowd from 1–2pm.
