MOSAIC Festival returns to Roma Street Parklands

Multicultural Australia’s MOSAIC Festival, that drew over 8,000 revellers last Spring, is back, bigger than ever as part of Brisbane Festival’s event line-up this September.

The signature festival event – part of Multicultural Australia’s 25th Anniversary celebrations – rolls out on Sunday 17 September, and admission is free.

Multicultural Australia’s CEO, Christine Castley said the festival is now well established as one of Brisbane’s most popular celebrations of our multicultural society.

“It brings people together from all walks of life in a shared love of music and exotic food right in the green heart of beautiful Brisbane.”

“It’s a great big, fun day out where stronger relationships and understandings between all our peoples are shared,” Ms Castley said.

With the Parklands in full spring bloom, the MOSAIC Festival features a non-stop, stellar line-up of more than 50 music and dance performances, workshops, and activations.

Headline act, Bullhorn, are a brass-infused powerhouse where trumpets, trombones, saxophones, and the dynamic presence of Roman MC will whip up unbeatable rhythms for an unforgettable party experience.

Artists from around the world will be on centre stage.

Acts include the Columbian Izalco, the talented Future Destin from the Democratic Republic of Congo, and the show-stopping Unbreakable Dance Crew, originally from South Sudan.

As well as enjoying outstanding entertainers, the event features the popular Cultural Kitchen, with home chefs from migrant and refugee backgrounds sharing treasured family recipes.

“Home chefs from the multicultural community will cook their treasured dishes for revellers to taste and savour whilst sharing their settlement stories,” Ms Castley said.

“This year, dishes from Afghanistan, Iraq, Ghana, Ukraine, and Venezuela will feature.”

“The MOSAIC Multicultural Festival highlights Brisbane’s on-going commitment to creating a safe, welcoming city for all cultures.”

The festival runs from 10am till 5pm on Sunday 17 September.
