Moomba 2012 Music Line-up – Melbourne’s Free Music And Culture Festival

Melbourne’s annual Moomba Festival will have its biggest music line-up yet – including a great mixture of local indie and cultural talent spanning over three nights at free concerts around the city.

Moomba is Australia’s largest free community festival and remains one of Melbourne’s favourite annual events. Presented by the City of Melbourne, it has been bringing Melburnians together in a spirit of celebration for more than 56 years.

The event will take place from Friday 9th March to Monday 12th March and all events will be free and will be performed across four stages at Alexandra Gardens and Birrarung Marr.
