Sydney Road Street Party

Unfortunately, the Moreland City Council Arts & Culture unit have found that, with the continued COVID-19 environment, they are not able to go ahead with the Sydney Road Street Party as usual in March. The Brunswick Music Festival will be going ahead from 4th-14th March with a few pop-ups on Sydney Road Brunswick.

If you are attending a BMF gig, then do we have a delicious offer for you, with Beats ‘N’ Eats! Beats ‘n’ Eats is the hottest ticket in town, representing the best food and drink deals on Sydney Road Brunswick, to be enjoyed before or after your BMF experience – all by showing your ticket!

Unfortunately due to COVID-19 and crowd sizes, the Sydney Road Street Party was not able to go ahead in its usual format. Instead, Moreland City Council ran three pop up live music events along Sydney Road at Sparta Place (13 March), Brunswick Mechanics Institute Forecourt (7 March) and Barkly Square (12 March) during the Brunswick Music Festival (5-14 March 2021). Sydney Road Brunswick Association hosted a stall at each event- giving away our totes, brochures, notepads and selling tees & jigsaw puzzles.

A FREE event that attracts thousands of people from around Melbourne and beyond.


Generally each year, Sydney Road transforms into a heaving extravaganza of sounds, smells and sights at Melbourne’s biggest street party. Performers, tasty treats and plenty of live music on the street and in local venues. 

The music ranges from roots and blues, African and Indigenous music and music by local young people. It’s a genuine all-ages day, celebrating peace, understanding and cultural diversity.

Free live music all day across six official street stages and five of your fave local venues – Brunswick Mechanics Institute (Next Wave), Stay Gold, The Brunswick Green, The Penny Black (now known as Penny’s) and The Retreat Hotel. Plus music, food, First Nation artist market and more at Blak Dot Gallery.





The Sydney Road Brunswick Association presented a Beauty and Beast Parlour – with many passers-by transforming themselves into a beauty or a beast with theatrical make-up including hair, nails, and dress-ups from Centrestage Costumes! We also had many performers on throughout the day, at the Victoria St. intersection.
