The festival will feature a number of special guests, including bands The Merri Creek Pickers, Danny Walsh Banned, Miss Eileen and King Lear, The Rims, The Bobby Pins, Soul Salvation, Malcolm Hill and Biddlewood, online blogger and personality Reservoir Dad as well as illusive social commentator Voir Tales with more to be announced.
If you’re thirsty, head over to the The Compass Club pop up festival hub bar, which will play host to a slew of entertainers each night. Additionally, the Edwardes Street Party will offer free interactive arts activities, stage entertainment and stalls, capped off with a dazzling fireworks display and with the Cambodian Space Project headlining proceedings.
One of the elements that True North prides itself on is its use of non traditional arts spaces for a range of events. You can find cabaret at Pole Princess dance studio and catch your favourite band playing in a laundromat. The Darebin Community and Kite Festival will round out the weekend, featuring heaps of kite making activities and food stalls.
