Melbourne Antipodes Festival set to return to Lonsdale Street in October after multiple postponements

·

Melbourne’s largest Greek cultural celebration is back for another epic street party. This year’s Greek fest will take over Lonsdale Street for a weekend packed with music, dancing and carnival rides.

The Antipodes festival holds the title of Melbourne’s longest running Greek festival. Launched in 1987, Antipodes, or the Lonsdale Street Greek Festival, has been a rich showcase of Hellenic arts and culture for delighted audiences.

This year’s Antipodes festival (Lonsdale Street Greek Festival) was originally planned for March 5 and 6, but has been postponed until late October.

This is the third proposed date for the festival after two postponements due to coronavirus concerns. They replaced the event last year with a Greek music event which featured food trucks and live music to keep the ‘Greek spirit alive’ despite the setback. 

The event sees community, traditional and contemporary groups come together to present and perform across three stages. 80 stalls will adorn the street and will be complemented by the Lonsdale St Precinct traders, who will extend their trade for the weekend
