Love to the fam

Forget about the siesta, come down to the fiesta on Sunday 28 April at the Brunswick Ballroom.

After the success of our first Family Fiesta in 2023, which was a sell-out sensation brimming with joy and happiness, we’re thrilled to invite you to our second event on Sunday 28 April. 

Come along and celebrate family, friendship, community, and connection through music. Bring your little ones, grandparents, friends or even just yourself to dance and revel in the vibrant Fiesta atmosphere. Everyone is welcome here. Love to the fam, in all its forms.

Expect an afternoon of music, pop-up performances, dance and dress-ups with some other special surprises thrown in too.

STARRING MELBOURNE FAVES: La Descarga and Danny Walsh Banned alongside the one and only Rezza Rockers (Reservoir West Primary School rock band) and the joyful Reservoir Views Primary Choir (Reservoir Views Primary School).


“A fearless outburst of tropicality”

La Descarga is a fresh, contemporary and exciting take on Colombian coastal rhythms. While blending the traditions with the electric and electronic sounds, it brings original tunes as well as old time retakes of the golden tropical days of Colombian music.

La Descarga has been influenced deeply by the street carnival cultures of Latin America with their upbeat music, colours and dance, mixing the old and the new grooves and moves of Colombian and world Tropical culture; and bringing these vibes to the stages of some of Australia’s most beloved festivals including MOOMBA, Port Fairy Folk Festival, Darwin Festival, Brunswick Music Festival, Australian Multicultural Festival, White Night Melbourne, Waterfront Festival and Darebin Music Feast.



The Danny Walsh Banned have been playing fever-pitched shows and jumping on tables for over a dozen years. Danny and his trusty band of half a dozen including effervescent and iconic keyboard player, The Weed, serve up country-soul and rock’n’roll flavours infused with a touch of 70s Aussie boogie that will probably have you dancing on the tables, too.

Danny Walsh has toured around the world, from the pubs of Ireland, cafe's of Copenhagen and rooftops of Berlin to the Edinburgh Fringe and Clarksdale (Mississippi) Festivals. The Banned’s third album, “In the Wimmera'' was listed in Rhythms Magazine’s top 10 albums of 2020, following extensive airplay (Double J, 3RRR, 3PBS and ABC Wimmera) and rave reviews:

“Walsh’s lyrics depict each landscape and emotional swirl with the caress of a bona fide bush poet…Country-folk, some retro rock’n’roll and Hill Country-style blues take the listener on a journey – looking back and yearning ahead.” - Forte Magazine



The Rezza Rockers are a group of year 5 and 6 students from Reservoir West Primary School who get together every week after school to rock! Get ready to shake to the sound of the new generation of Reservoir rockers.


Reservoir Views Primary School students are engaged and connected; to their learning, their local community and to each other. Joy and connection are the aims, with an emphasis on building a rich and diverse sound world. Comprised of students from grades 3-6, The Reservoir Views Primary Choir will sing a selection of uplifting songs for you at the Family Fiesta.

We are also super happy to launch the very first Love to the Fam children’s chill space, a dedicated relaxed space with wind-down activities and great facilities for a peaceful break.
