Oceania Festival at Parramatta aims to bring together communities, showcasing the Pacific, First Nations and cultural diversities of Western Sydney.
Through music, song, dance, food and creative activations, Prince Alfred Park will come alive with traditional as well as contemporary expressions.
From hip-hop to soul, reggae to vude, you will be moved by historical dances and stories from Samoa, Cook Islands, Tonga, Fiji and more, whilst also hearing the stories of our youth and communities of Western Sydney.
From the team that brought your Fiji Day and Fiji Festival in Parramatta – Tapastry, Kokonut Vibe and Fiji Youth Pacific Initiatives are presenting a big day bringing together several communities and genres.
Featuring some of the most talented artists in the region, including MRVZ, STNDRD, Biggs685, Matavai Pacific Cultural Arts, Ilisavani and more. Curated by Hip-hop connoisseur, MC Trey, the main stage is poised to be a vibe, mixing it up with hip-hop, RnB, Reggae beats, Soul and Island styles.
‘Western Sydney is home to so much amazing talent. The communities are diverse and passionate about their cultures and creativity. I’m so excited to see our stories amplified on the day’, said MC Trey.
There will also be a bevy of cultural food stalls alongside business, information, creative and clothing stalls. Grab a feed, add to your wardrobe or connect with new services in the area. There will also be a speakers tent which will feature luminaries from the Oceanic youth, community and business sectors.
