The warm nights might be coming to an end but Queen Victoria Market won’t be shutting up shop any time soon. They’ve just announced a new lineup over four weeks in April, the event is called Spaced Out and it’ll be featuring food trucks, a pop-up bar, live music and entertainment all with a galactic theme.
We know you’ll be heading to the bar so we’ll start there. The brilliantly named Infinity & Beyond Bar will be serving up space-themed cocktails including Space Rock Fizz—a gin and spiced rum cocktail with a tropical, fruity twist—and the Drops of Jupiter cocktail which is all about the peaches and cream. They’ll also be serving Michelton wines, Coldstream Brewery ciders and beers by Brick Lane Brewing.
Queen Victoria Market is no stranger to a food truck or two or ten, so there’ll be no shortage for Spaced Out. All your favourites will be there serving up smokey American barbecue meats, jerk chicken, traditional paella, lobster rolls, fresh cannoli, popcorn prawns and bougie truffle fries.
The open-air sheds will be where the entertainment happens. Leading the lineup, The Thin White Ukes will be paying tribute to the ultimate star-man, David Bowie, with some of the greatest hits including Space Oddity and Ziggy Stardust so get your singing voices ready. On top of the live music, there will also be a spacey silent disco run by Guru Dudu, and a special, magical rotating lights and mirrors show from Chris Morant.
Lift off is on Wednesday 7 April, with the Wednesday night fun continuing for three more weeks and wrapping up on Wednesday 28 April. Entry is free for the 5pm-10pm galactic evenings.
