A free community celebration in the heart of Collingwood, WildnFree is especially happy to share the Peel Street Festival love before the big day this Saturday 11 November from 12-8pm.
Born in a shitty Smith Street flatshare only 100 or so metres away, this very music blog was nurtured and inspired and loved into life in Collingwood, in the block from Stanley Street to the Grace Darling Hotel, down Peel Street past the red-doored club so often frequented by dog-collared patrons, opposite the glorious LazerPig with its might front bar and pizza, then back down Little Oxford Street past the park on the corner, the only green space to breathe in at all.
If it’s anything like the annual Smith Street Dreaming, held as part of the Leaps And Bounds Music Festival in the dead of winter, The Peel Street Festival will be a beautiful event. Here’s the line up!
MAINSTAGE (all ages)
Cash Savage and The Last Drinks
Uncle Jack Charles
Archer Magazine in conversation: ‘Safe Spaces’
Collingwood Neighbourhood House Presents: Music For Change
The Grace Darling (18+)
Plus community stalls, food and installations from:
Fitzroy Club house
Falafel party pancake
Please don’t forget that this event will take place on the stolen lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation. We pay our respects to elders past, present and future, and acknowledge that sovereignty has never been ceded.
Here’s a little something appropriate from headliner Archie Roach:
