FBi Turns 10!

Staged at Carriageworks in Eveleigh, FBi Turns 10: A Music and Art Festival was a triumphant affair. With an impressive line-up, the bigger names included: Midnight Juggernauts, The Presets, Sarah Blasko and The Preatures, a wide variety of music preferences were catered to. Four stages belting out sonic soundscapes, DJ and dance sets, with electronic to soothing soul covered. 

The day started off with a bang as Zeahorse, Movement and Stolen Records DJs took to the stage. The wildly enigmatic Kirin J Callinan played a base-laden set, lit eerily in red light. Oliver Tank charmed with heart-rending vocals and rich composition—genre bending in the vein of James Blake.  

Melbourne's dukes of dance, World's End Press were an absolute crowd pleaser. As the sun broke through the grey clouds, their vibrant percussion had the audience writhing in wild dance. The boys are a constant favourite amongst festival-goers. 


The charismatic quintet, Deep Sea Arcade played to a full house. Joined on stage by Luke Davison of The Preatures, their throbbing tracks pulsated through the crowd. Hermitude and Urthboy were in demand, getting the festival into the hip-hop swing of things, while Seekae put on an intoxicating live show with their electronic ambience. 

Blue Mountains' heroes Cloud Control appeared as secret guests, giving way to epic sing-alongs (those riffs are so damn catchy!). It was the perfect way to end the evening. 

Along with performance art by Underbelly Arts and live painting curated by aMBUSH Gallery, not to mention some tasty food truck options, it was one hell of a celebration. Happy birthday FBi!
