On Saturday 25 August, Western Sydney will light up with two vibrant events showcasing the very best food, music and culture out West. Liverpool street celebration Eat Your Heart Out runs from 2 – 9pm on Railway St, and the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA)’s FREE flagship youth event GENEXT GOES WEST runs from 5 – 8pm at Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre.
“After a fantastic inaugural year, Eat Your Heart Out returns to celebrate the best of the Liverpool region and celebrate the rejuvenated city centre. The day is a spectacular opportunity for both locals and wider Sydneysiders alike to come together and enjoy a day of tantalising food and incredible local arts,” said Festival Producer Vi Girgis.
Taking over Liverpool’s Station Street, Eat Your Heart Out returns for a second year of mouth-watering food trucks, music and arts. Catch food truck fare including Dirty Bird’s Japanese fried chicken delights and Berlin Bangers’ array of wondrous wursts, or check out a pop-up shipping container restaurant and bar from Liverpool’s Macquarie Bistro, showcasing its menu by celebrity chef Colin Fassnidge.
“Come evening, young people can hop on a train for GENEXT GOES WEST, programmed by young people, for young people! Parent and teacher-free, teens can catch live music from the hottest emerging musicians and get involved with thought-provoking workshops – all for FREE!” said CPAC Director Craig Donarski.
From 5pm, MCA’s GENEXT GOES WEST will transform Casula Powerhouse into a bustling festival-style event of art, live music and performance. The MCA Youth Committee and CPAC Youth have programmed an event exclusively for young people aged 12-18 years featuring live experimental pop queens Kota Banks and Princi, eclectic producer CLYPSO and electro-soul starlet Clarissa Mei, as well as engaging workshops from local artists including Leila El Rayes.
