Foreign Brothers are back with an afternoon of live music, body rocking and roller skating at the MMW flagship venue the Former Royal Women’s Hospital. Roller Jam will feature a live set from The Public Opinion Six and the 30/70 collective followed by a monumental live jam session with the Foreign Brothers Core-Tet including special appearances from local legends 1/6, N’fa Jones, Average Rap Band, Silentjay, Jace XL, Mya Wallace, Zii, Pataphysics, Cazeaux O.S.L.O, Mouad Old Boy and many more. With Chris Gill (Triple R/Northside Records) and the Victorian Roller Derby League girls on board, the party will be kicking as much on the rink as it will be on the dance floor.
Teaming up with the Foreign Brothers, MzRizk and her Block Party will move away from Section 8 to take over the MMW flagship outdoor area. Conceived as a homage to the original block parties that happened in NYC back in the day, Melbourne DJ/radio host MzRizk will bring together Melbourne’s music loving community. This will be a dope day of dancing, eating, chilling and getting your hair done while experiencing positive hip-hop culture with an all-women line-up of DJs including JNETT, Mamacita Bonnita and Miss Goldie. Dancers and artists will perform and create throughout the day, and MCs will be announced.
Co-presented with the Foreign Brothers and Mz Rizk.
