Garlic Bread Festival
Welcome To Thornbury, Northcote / 12pm – 10:30pm
This is an event pretty self-explanatory, but to get the taste buds enticed, lemme throw a few words out there: crispy bread, butter that melts onto your tongue, dusted in some of that salty garlic goodness. Need I say more? How about garlic bread burgers and garlic naan tacos? And for those not on the garlic train (first off, what is wrong with you?) Secondly, there’s the good ol food trucks to endorse in, including Sizzling Sausage, Curry Up Now, Mr Burger and more. BYO mints encouraged.

High Tide Pool Party!
Brunswick Baths, Brunswick / 1:30pm-4:30pm
Flip out the banana lounge at Brunswick Baths for High Tide, Brunswick Music Festival’s first ever pool party! Making waves in the afternoon heat will include a set by electro-soul trio, Silver Linings as well as top-notch DJ, Shio Otani, filling the water-filled fun space with tunes that will get all swimmers awkwardly bobbing above the surface. Synchronised swimmers, The Eastern Sirens, will also be performing. For the price of a pool entry, what better way to start off the week!
