The CBD Exposed urban youth music festival will take over the Liverpool Night Markets on Saturday 7 March, with L-FRESH The LION featuring Mirrah and MK-1, as well as some of Australia’s most talented young dancers from The Street University including The Pioneers, set to perform.
“Council is a big supporter and fan of The Street University’s work, and as such it’s fantastic to have the CBD Exposed festival and The Street University on board for the March Night Markets,” said Mayor Ned Mannoun.
“We’re excited to see what these talented young people, many of whom are from the Liverpool area, have planned for us. We welcome families and the wider community to come along to see what they’re about and to enjoy the free live entertainment.”
Marketgoers will also be able to pick up items from the Street University’s latest clothing range. Street Uni Clothing is designed and produced by young people, who also learn about what it takes to run a business.
