Sydney Road Street Party


Unfortunately due to COVID and crowd sizes, the Sydney Road Street Party will not be able to go ahead in its usual format. Instead, Moreland City Council will be running 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). More info TBA closer to the event.

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 and The Retreat Hotel. Plus music, food, First Nation artist market and more at Blak Dot Gallery.
