September 8, 2010
This year The Boroughs is back bigger and better with a massive collaboration of the raddest crews in town, including Bedford Avenue Media, IOHYOU, Common Trolls, Love that Music, Spill Collective & RMIT University (Art Department).
The venue is EPIC!!! Found in an inner city, lawn oasis (we stole that phrase from Better Homes and Gardens), the RMIT Alumni courtyard has never been used for an Art and Music festival like this before! With the sorts of production you’d expect at Splendour, the outdoor main stage will host a massive line-up of local and interstate acts. In addition, the adjoining gaol cells and crim exercise yard will be turned into bars, activations and a dance floor by Common Trolls Records.
The Boroughs will incorporate some crazy activations like a wicked scavenger hunt (with f#@k-off-good prizes… as in bring your passport!), Art Galleries and live art sponsored by Doss Blockos and T-Squat, a vintage fashion market brought to you by Up & Comers Fashion Markets, Bleecker Street and Embassy Clothing and arthouse performances from Spill Collective.
The Boroughs is an 18+ event. So please bring your I.D!
The 2010 Boroughs Line-up is as follows:
