But the music doesn’t stop there! Joining the Pierce Brothers on stage are a stellar lineup of artists including Steph Strings, Kitschen Boy, Mitch Santiago, and D’arcy Spiller. From indie rock tunes to soulful melodies, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

Before the stage lights up, attendees can indulge in Melbourne’s finest culinary offerings courtesy of the city’s most popular food trucks. From Filipino BBQ delights at Hoy Pinoy to authentic Italian woodfired pizza from 400 Gradi, the options are endless. And for those with a sweet tooth, the dedicated ‘Sweet Life’ zone promises a delectable array of desserts, including crepes, Greek doughnuts, gelato, and more!

For the over 18s, the Beer Garden is a must-visit, showcasing local boutique brewers, wine distillers, and artisan spirits from Melbourne’s West. Families will find plenty of fun at the ‘Play Zone’, with craft workshops, roving artists, and interactive activities to keep the little ones entertained.

Guests can also explore the ‘Woodlea Wellness Zone’ for activities that promote mindfulness and feel-good vibes, before venturing into the Community Co-LabZone to enjoy a range of local-led activations.

Designed as a fun-filled day for the whole family, Flavour Fest will feature multiple rides, free crafts, interactive experiences, and culminate in an epic fireworks display, adding to the magic of the event.
