Sydney Road Street Party

Sunday 3 March, 12noon to 6pm

We can’t wait for the 2024 Sydney Road Street Party, which will take place on Sunday 3 March!

Sydney Road Brunswick will again host a community inspired stage, and of course be selling our much loved t-shirts and bags.

More info on the 2024 Sydney Road Street Party and Brunswick Music Festival line-up coming soon!


After a two-year hiatus, the Sydney Road Street Party returned to Sydney Road Brunswick with gusto! As the opening event to the Brunswick Music Festival, the Sydney Road Street Party transformed Sydney Road Brunswick (from Brunswick Road to Victoria Street) into a bitumen beatbox with 8 stages showcasing the very best in local and international talents.

The Sydney Road Brunswick Association (SRBA), as always, had a stall selling our famed tee-shirts, bags & puzzles. Additionally in 2023, to showcase the talents of our business and broader community, SRBA delivered the Community Stage – providing a platform for groups to gain exposure and showcase themselves in front of thousands, over the course of the day. The Community Stage was located in front of the rock-climbing wall at Wilson Avenue (next to Dangerfield).

Unfortunately, the Merri-bek City Council Arts & Culture unit found that, with the continued COVID-19 environment, they were not able to go ahead with the Sydney Road Street Party as usual in March 2022. The Brunswick Music Festival did go ahead from 4th-14th March with a few pop-ups on Sydney Road Brunswick.

If you attended one of the many 2022 Brunswick Music Festival performances (4-14th March 2022), then hopefully you took advantage of our delicious offer, with Beats ‘N’ Eats.

Beats ‘n’ Eats was the hottest ticket in town, representing the best food and drink deals on Sydney Road Brunswick, to be enjoyed before or after a 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, Merri-bek 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.


Sydney Road transformed into a heaving extravaganza of sounds, smells and sights at Melbourne’s

The music ranged from roots and blues, African and Indigenous music and music by local young people. A genuine all-ages day, celebrating peace, understanding and cultural diversity.

Free live music played 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.




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.
