High Noon on High
Unlike the Gary Cooper classic, this High Noon won’t be featuring a lone sheriff, scumbag bandits on horseback and tumbleweeds (though that would be pretty great). Instead High Noon on High is a good old fashioned street party. It kicks off this Sunday at 10am with the High Breakfast, where the strip’s traders will transform the street into a massive al fresco dining area/beer garden. Then there’s music, art, fashion and more food, but only for eight hours. It’s kind of like going to work, if the world was a perfect place. This Sunday it might be.
What: Street Fiesta
When: Sunday 18 Sept 10am – 6pm
Where: High Street, Northcote

NO ZU, Toy Balloon and Nick Rave & the Bad Speed will be providing a tight tag-team of DJing the best rave, pop, disco etc you can imagine!
