Brisbane Serenades – Moorooka Block Party

The Party Heads South

We are lighting up Moorooka’s Pegg's Park with a banging party of killer beats, a fusion of dance, celebration and food.

Headlined by L-FRESH the LION, one of Australia’s leading Hip Hop artists, along with Bustamento, a tropical shaking six-piece band that pays homage to the upbeat rhythms of the Caribbean, covering the Calypso, Mento, early Reggae and Ska styles. Artists from the local community will also be found centre stage and don’t miss the exhilarating and epic outdoor dance from FOUND OBJECTS.

Artists and collectives from the local community come together to activate the biggest block party Moorooka has ever seen! A day fused with killer beats, dance, food, workshops and celebration – Mooroka Block Party is the place to dance and eat the afternoon away. 

Featuring Bustamento, L-FRESH the LION, and FOUND OBJECTS and more to be announced.
