These unique Australian artists will bring an eclectic mix of beats and DJ styles to the Brolga Pond stage kicking off at 4pm.

Wagga Wagga City Council’s Director Community Janice Summerhayes says the festival has proven to be a community favourite in past years.

“FUSION BOTANICAL has grown to be one of the city’s biggest outdoor events, with thousands of residents and visitors from across the region and beyond soaking in the sights, sounds and scents,” Ms Summerhayes said.

“We have curated an exciting and eclectic line-up with some of the country’s most creative and talented DJs and artists.

“Along with our headline and support acts, there will be a mix of other entertainment, including Silent Disco Walking Tours, interactive roving acts and outdoor creative play experiences alongside giant lawn games, miniature railway rides and our amazing community performers.

“You will want to arrive hungry at FUSION BOTANICAL multicultural festival with more than 25 traditional street food and drink vendors operating in the much-loved World Food Village. The full details will be announced in the coming weeks.”

Try authentic street food, soak up the festival atmosphere and dance to upbeat, culturally diverse musicians at FUSION BOTANICAL.

The festival will be held in the Wagga Wagga Botanic Gardens, Macleay Street on Wiradyuri Nguramgbang (Country) from 4pm to 9.30pm on Saturday 21 October.

FUSION BOTANICAL is presented and funded by Wagga Wagga City Council and supported by cultural partner the Multicultural Council of Wagga Wagga.
