More than 600 artists, 40 venues, and all in 11 days; that's how this music feast rolls. Saying Melbourne's thriving music community comes together to celebrate songwriting and music would be putting it mildly. It's more like the whole event's program is an explosion of activities. Industry panels, family workshops, live discussions, dance parties, interactive installations and more, are part of the activities at the Darebin Music Feast 2016.

This rich and diverse collection of musical events takes place at various venues from Thursday 27 October to Sunday 6 November 2016. In the spirit of the belief that music brings people together, this event can be enjoyed by all, no matter creed or culture. Music is a universal language.

To celebrate 20 years of being around, the Feast is putting on some extra special events. It kicks off with a free preview party on Thursday 27 October at 5.30pm at the Northland Shopping Centre outdoor dining precinct. It'll feature performances by the carnivalesque Miss Colombia, Decibels artist, Chitra, and dancing go-go fun with Anna Go-Go amongst other entertainment.

Be sure to check out the special events page for other performances and events that includes a Closing Party, the Songwriters' Award Grand Final, the wonderfully talented Geraldine Quinn's performance at the Prince Bowie Dance Party! Party! and more.

The stage at Preston Fresh Hood will be churning out buskers for your listening pleasure. For events more kid friendly, the Northcote Town Hall and the Preston Fresh Hood will be hosting Musical Chairs and Kiddyrock African Drumming. The Northcote Town Hall will also be playing host to a diverse program of unique special events.

This event has it all; from rock to folk to gypsy to jazz and everything in between. Darebin Live sees community music groups perform alongside touring international acts in some of Melbourne's most prestigious live music venues. On a slightly serious educational note, there'll be some shop talk going on with workshops, and talks on a variety of subjects about the music industry. Be sure to scour the website,Facebook page, and the Flip Book for all information, including some ticketed events, so as not to miss out.
