It will bring together more than 70 acts, as bands, circus performers, buskers and dancers take over four stages and Boundary Street itself.
The block party is something of a revival of the Boundary Street Festival, an annual grassroots festival that ran for many years in the heart of West End. It began very much as a local community celebration, and I remember the days when punters and performers alike were all West Enders.
The festival grew, moved, and changed over the years, before disappearing a little while ago.
WECA says that this year's block party is a chance to bring back the Boundary Street Festival tradition and celebrate the values at the heart of West End -- respect, diversity and creativity.
They've partnered with others in the community to put together an awesome program. You can hear dub and reggae from the likes of Kingfisha and Dubmarine, a bit of crazy gypsy thrash from my personal favourites, Mouldy Lovers, or lots of other stuff from lots of other bands.
There'll be street performances by local circus types from the Ice Cream Factory (a circus space out the back of the Absoe site), Bollywood and Brazilian dancing, and activities for kids.
Local eateries and drinkeries will open their doors, and the West End Twilight Markets will also run. Everybody's welcome, provided you embrace the happy vibe.
