The Feast will kick off on 20 October with a massive outdoor Opening Party, featuring 15 acts across three stages. Mirroring last year’s hugely successful Closing Party, it’ll be all ages, all day and free entry, with a stellar line-up including Alice Skye, Emma Donovan and The Putbacks, Huntly, Jess Ribeiro, Kee’ahn, Raw Humps, Rebel Yell, The Goon Sax, Tiana Khasi, U-Bahn and more!
The Feast for Families program will feature Sounds Exquisite, an interactive sound installation made by Darebin primary school students in collaboration with local arts organisation Playable Streets. Families can drop in to the Keon Park Children’s Hub at any time Monday to Friday to interact with the artwork, or head down on Sunday 27 October for the finale event hosted by some of the creators from Playable Streets.
The annual Darebin Music Feast Songwriters’ Award Grand Final returns to Northcote Town Hall on 24 October. One of ten local finalists will take home a prize package of $2000 cash, studio time and more.
As always, Darebin Live guarantees something for everyone with a week-long, back-to-back program of gigs across Darebin’s prestigious music venues. Showcasing an incredible breadth of styles, from punk, alt-rock, indie and folk to jazz, electro and soul, Darebin Live sees community music groups and emerging local talent perform alongside touring national acts.
The hugely successful Event Producer Mentorship program AMPLIFY also returns, this year with a focus on young producers aged 16-25. The 2019 mentorship was awarded to Acacia Coates and Winnie McQuinn, who under the guidance of Woody McDonald have curated Green Noise, an event inspired by sustainable initiatives in the music industry, youth climate strikes and growing environmental activism. Their carefully curated line-up features Jade Imagine, Elizabeth, Empat Lima and The Vovos – all chosen for their passion for and promotion of sustainable practices. A free, all ages event, Green Noise will take place on 27 October, closing out this year’s program with a bang.
