For the first time at Fed Square, local and international acts will converge with the vibrant party that is Afro-Caribbean Carnival.
At the heart of the party, four legendary Melbourne sound systems (DIYHiFi, Housewife’s Choice, Heartical Hi Powa and El Gran Mono) and international heavyweights Saxon Sound System and Spikey Tee will battle across three stages.
Wear your best carnival costume for a chance to be crowned the first Afro-Caribbean King or Queen of Carnival or head to the free drop-in workshop in the Atrium, where you can decorate your own headpiece.
It wouldn’t be carnival without the food – head to Swanston Street for Afro-Caribbean and African favourites the Real Jerk, Wing a Lingding and Angie’s Kitchen.
