Main Stage Event

Be entertained by exotic Belly Dancers, traditional South Pacific Islander Fire Dance and energetic Bollywood Dancers.

Brewed in Ireland and distilled in Australia the Barleyshakes are a Celtic band with world music influences that combine intense energy, beautiful harmony and driving dance rhythms in their live performances.

With a fascination for making something new from the old, Mzaza's writers and musicians skilfully create their own set of traditions from a tapestry of richly woven influences from France, the Balkans, the Middle East and Sephardic Spain.

Joe Tee and Afrodisia was founded around a combination of remarkably gifted and experienced African born musicians. Afrodisa's music is based on an unusual fusion of African rhythms, including Ghanaian Hi-life, Reggae, Calypso and other popular music. Precise and soulful vocals imbued with the group's own indefinable flavour creates an energetic dance feel!

Izalco brings you an infectious non-stop party experience with that Latin flavour. Presenting an energetic and unique interpretation of the popular rhythms of Latin America, Izalco will have you in motion on the dance floor.

Be here to enjoy the vibrant colours, sounds and delicious tastes of our multicultural community.

A visit to the amazing workshops will see you delving into the traditional art of Chinese paper craft, receiving a henna tattoo, making Polynesian flower crowns, or acquiring an African hair braid.

Children can 'make and take' music shakers, tribal necklaces and dragon puppets or get creative at Rangoli Sand Art.

Gather the family for a multitude of fun, including connect four, giant dodge ball, chess, snakes and ladders and checkers. More games from around the world including Africa, Polynesia, Egypt, Germany, Sweden, England and of course Australia, will have participants catching, throwing, balancing, juggling and shrieking in delight.
