The festival theme of ’local to global’ celebrated the area’s history of elevating local talent, from music to fashion, to world-renowned status. The theme was also reflected across the street food, dance, spoken word, Capoeira and International Queer Cabaret, bringing the area’s unique qualities together across one amazing site.
