Final weekend of Brunswick Music Festival

It’s been a huge week at Brunswick Music Festival!

We had a life-affirming dose of NOLA when The Hot 8 Brass Band hit Moreland and blew the roof off Coburg Town Hall, felt all the feels and had our hearts stolen when one of the most important bands of Poland’s neo-folk scene, Warsaw Village Band, shared their music and stories and had the privilege of experiencing the hypnotic sonic poet Aziza Brahim, who transported us to the plains of Western Sahara and beyond with her extraordinary desert blues.

And the beat goes on, with plenty more to come over the final weekend of the Festival.

The weekend is jam pack with free and ticketed shows.

Music For The People at Shore Reserve this Sunday!
BMF Closing Party | Free and all ages

Gather your family, friends, neighbours and pets, pack a picnic and your dancing shoes and help us wrap up Brunswick Music Festival in style on Sunday! Music For The People will be a gorgeous evening of family entertainment drawn from places near and far – stretch out in the green surrounds and fill up on the good vibes and eclectic music.
