The stage on Fairfax Street, opens with a disco extravaganza from Crazy P Soundsystem, The Boogie Cartel, Brassroots and Jus Now.

Local heroes Weapon of Choice will host live graff battles, while Shambarber’s own stage will feature all sorts of exciting new additions for tache and quiffs.

The Block Party will take place between 12pm – 9pm on Saturday 18th.
