Food, music, art and culture to combine at Fusion15 this Saturday

Food, music, art and culture from 98 countries will combine for Wagga’s annual multicultural street festival Fusion15 on Saturday 17 October.

Whether you want the world on a plate or to have a boogie with the Dancing Accountant, this year’s Fusion is sure to entertain all corners of the community.

In 2014, the Civic Centre was overflowing with 10,000 festival-goers from across the region.

Council’s Director Environmental and Community Services Janice Summerhayes said staff have been hard at work curating a spectacular line up of artists, musicians, community performers and stallholders to ensure Fusion15 is the biggest yet.

“Not only will we have some of the best acts in the country, Fusion15 will again showcase everything our community has to offer,” she said.

“Wagga is made up of 98 countries, 99 language groups and 67 faiths – that diversity is what makes Wagga and Fusion so special.

“There is literally something for everyone – if you’re a foodie, come and taste cuisine from around the world. If you love music, you can see performers like L-FRESH the Lion and Mojo Juju.

“You can even get hands on with free interactive art activities, or just roam around and enjoy the sights, sounds and scents of Fusion15.”

Sikh-inspired rapper L-FRESH The LION, the eclectic Mojo Juju, world music collective Reflejos Musique and one-man flash mob The Dancing Accountant are the major drawcards for this year’s Fusion.

Fusion15 will form part of national tours for both Mojo Juju and L-FRESH, who will be kicking off his 11-show tour at the Wagga festival.

With a passion for music and human rights, L-FRESH’s video for new song Get Mine has been gaining national media attention from The Guardian Australia and the 7.30 Report.

To get into the mix, head to Fusion15 from 4pm to 9pm at the Civic Precinct or visit for more information.
