Dress Up Attack! is family event that engages children in the world of music and art. It first took place in September last year and it will return to Addison Rd Centre in Marrickville again this year on Saturday September 7, running from 10.00am to 5.00pm.
All sorts of activities will be on offer at the festival, including dance workshops with Dance Central and creative costume workshops with Reverse Garbage. There will also be roaming installations and performers, as well as a new attraction: DJ Goldfoot's Go-Go Tent.
A number of special guests will perform throughout the day and one performer many young kids will get pretty excited about is the popular Justine Clarke. She will be coming to Sydney for the first time this year to perform songs from her latest album, I Love to Sing.
Also performing at Dress Up Attack! will be Regurgitator (yes, they're not exactly known for being a children's band, but they'll make sure their songs are suitably G-rated just for the occasion). Other performers scheduled include Lah Lah's Big Live Band and Nic Dalton's and Alison Galloway's The Sticker Club.
Food will be available on the day for anyone feeling peckish and it's all been curated by Real Food Projects too, so expect produce from local, artisan producers (particularly seasonal and sustainable food), as well as picnic hampers for the family. Miss Dipity from Serendipity Ice Cream will also be offering Super Premium Ice Cream, but families are welcome to bring their own food too (parents should keep in mind that the event is strictly alcohol-free).
Tickets to Dress Up Attack! are on sale now through Moshtix. They cost $15.30 for children between 1 and 16 years old (infants under 12 months are free) and $30. 70 for adults. These prices include booking fees. Concession tickets are also available, as are family bundles, which start at $55.20.
Anyone wanting to dress up for this event is encouraged to do so, but it's not required.
