Flying Colours is the new Melbourne festival heading to Reunion Park

Flying Colours is the new festival offering from Melbourne legends Moor Music and The Operatives.

You’ll know Moor Music well from the likes of Rinse Aid, DUSK, and In Waves, and The Operatives in equally high esteem from Let Them Eat Cake, Flow Festival, The DOT, as well as their awesome Melbourne Music Week showcases.

Now, they’re joining forces to launch Flying Colours Festival at Reunion Park in Burnley, which will take place across two stages, offering a kaleidoscopic showcase of aural exploration. Think nu-jazz, hip hop, neo-soul, jazzy house, broken beat, with one finger firmly on the pulse of the local underground scene.

Keep up with the latest music news, features, festivals, interviews and reviews here.

The lineup’s led by Close Counters, First Beige and JK Group. Other acts include Luen, Horatio Luna, Thando, Kalacoma, Niine, Fly Boy Jack, Beatnik Collective, DJ Smilez, DJ Nay Nay, Emma Volard, Hollie Joyce, Coookie, Proto Moro, Ajak Kwai (DJ Set), Zepherin Saint, Kgomotso, Amber Ferraro, and Moor Music DJs.

The festival organisers are focusing their emphasis on future-tilting dance music, live acts are bound together by a diverse collection of sophisticated selectors and musicians-come-DJs. The festival’s aiming to celebrate the industrious plight of local artists working to keep the live music scene alive.

This event will take place on the lands of the Wurrundjeri Woi Wurring People of the Kulin Nation, happening on the Labour Day public holiday on March 12 at Reunion Park, home of Burnley Circus.

Tickets are available here.
