âPlaying and experiencing FLOW has definitely been one of my highlights of 2019,â said Skomes of SO.Crates.
âThe Foreign Brothers team hosted a day that simultaneously had the intimacy and community of a local organic event along with the high production values ââand professionalism of a commercial festival. Community engagement and participation has been essential in shaping this and I deeply thank them for doing so. “
With a strong community ethic, providing a safe space for a range of marginalized communities and creatives, FLOW Festival aims to champion new movements in hip hop, RnB, jazz and all that is touching. Their programming merges the old and the new, encouraging new creative connections in an environment that celebrates the vitality of POC artists and ensures gender equality.
FLOW is also a family event. Children under 18 will be allowed with a parent or guardian. Children are free, but these tickets can only be purchased by purchasing an adult ticket.
âFLOW 2019 wasn’t just a festival, it’s a day I won’t long forget,â POOKIE added. âThe energy in the air that day was intoxicating. The lineup was so well organized that all the interactions I had with other artists made me feel love and light.
âIt was exactly what everyone needed to complete their decade after what seemed like a year without end. I really believe the FLOW festival unlocked something in the music community that we were looking for but couldn’t quite express yet. Here I am demonstrating for FLOW standards in my future festival experiences.
With buzzing tunes and flowing drinks, you can expect a selection of soulful food served on the day that is sure to kick off the return of the IRL festival experience in style. The first release tickets are on sale now, starting at $ 99 + BF. Don’t miss your chance to attend one of Melbourne’s premier one-day festivals when FLOW arrives for the second round in November.
