Carnival Of Suburbia

Carnival Of Suburbia

The suburbs are considered by many to be a barren wasteland devoid of culture, but in reality so much of the art hanging in trendy galleries and the music being played in hip inner urban venues was created in the garages and lounge rooms of suburbia so why not celebrate it in its place of origin.

Carnival of Suburbia is about celebrating Melbourne suburban culture!

The Carnival of Suburbia is a central and defining component of the Oakleigh Music Festival which is a community event celebrating the City of Monash and its music, food and culture.

We are big fans of The Caravan Music Club -- they have so many ace things coming up that, including The Carnival Of Suburbia. it was hard to choose the highlights!

Jordie Lane

His latest cd has had fantastic reviews - "An intimate, beautifully somber record that shimmers in the glow of earthy Americana and country-soaked laments". Rolling Stone "Channeling Parsons, Springsteen and Van Zandt, Lane is an exceptional talent. MAG - 4 stars


Their live show is a performance like no other, treading a line between a Vegas 70s showroom extravaganza and a bunch of freshfaced undertakers letting loose at a rained sodden rock festival.
