Darebin Music Feast

BY ART NEWS PORTAL | 21-Sep-2012
There must be a thousand festivals in Melbourne. But Darebin Music Feast is one of the rare ones - the perfect combination of great local talent, a thriving village of live music venues, a fiercely loyal local audience and the intoxicating beginnings of Spring.

The Darebin Music Feast began in 1996 and in recent years has evolved to become a high profile and well respected Victorian community music festival, while still retaining its grass roots music ethos. The festival is dedicated to song-writing and celebrating the diversity of one of Melbourne's most thriving musical communities.

In 2012 Melbourne Fringe & Darebin Music Feast embark on a new partnership and continue their support of live music in Melbourne with an Independent Music Partnership. The partnership sees the festivals combine forces to promote Melbourne's vibrant independent music scene.

Chinese Philosopher Mencius once said that if the King loves music, all is well within the land. In 2012, all is well, because everyone loves music and the Darebin Music Feast has returned with a stellar line-up and a program of amazing musical events.
