Antipodes Festival seeking applications
Melbourne's Hellenic Festival is looking for people who want to contribute to next year's event
The Antipodes Festival in Melbourne is seeking applications from stall holders, performers and umbrella events to be part of next year’s celebration of all things Hellenic.
Glendi Co-ordinator Tony Tsourdalakis said the main event will be the Lonsdale Street Glendi, on the weekend of 5-6 March.
“I’ve no doubt it’ll create interest, as it does every year, especially once we announce the main act,” he said, adding that he will be doing that in the next two weeks.
He said he’s expecting around 30 – 40 stalls to fill Lonsdale Street, including community groups, food stalls and exhibitions.
And he encouraged all sorts of entertainers to apply to perform at the Glendi.
“It’s for people who want to be part of the actual program, whether it’s local bands, local artists, actors, dancing groups, all forms of entertainment to do with the Greek culture and heritage,” he said.
While the Glendi coincides with Apokries (Carnivale), the period leading up to Lent, he said the festival was hosting umbrella events throughout the year.
“For example, there’s a Cretan theatrical group that’s coming from Crete, and that’s happening in February,” he said.
The Antipodes Festival was founded in 1987.
Applications are open online until 4 February at www.antipodesfestival.com.au
