Collarts is excited to announce our exclusive partnership with Sweetfest, a community festival designed to celebrate women in music.
Sponsored by Sweethearts Foundation Inc., the event provides performance opportunities for young women throughout Melbourne and Geelong, showcasing female soul, funk, and blues talent through a string of live shows.
At the heart of the foundation is the Sweethearts band - powerful women shaking things up in the Jazz circuit, with performances at Montreux Jazz Festival, Jazz à Vienne, and the Porretta Soul Festival to prove it.
Next March, see Geelong’s Little Malop Street Precinct transformed into a hub for live talent, as 30 different artists are set to perform and share their industry insights through workshops and creative panels.
Headlined by Alex Lahey, Sweetfest will showcase four stages of live music from the best national and local female musicians including the Sweethearts band, Hayley Mary, Emma Donovan & The Putbacks, Fulton Street and more.
