Now in its fourth year, you should know to set your expectations high for Melbourne Music Week. All that dancing you’ll be doing burns off calories that need replacing, so the festival has brought on board some of the city’s biggest names in food to match the killer music line-up (have you heard about our Broadsheet Melbourne Music Week Pass?).

From the team behind the ever-popular People’s Market comes the People’s Garden, which will be serving up your favourite foods within the festival hub, The Residence, across all ten days. Alongside bands and resident DJs, the People’s Garden will see a different restaurant take over the kitchen every couple of days, from Middle-Eastern fare by Rumi, to Indian street food from Horn Please, sister digs Hanoi Hannah and Saigon Sally serving up baby banh mi, Meatball & Wine Bar, B’Stilla and even a misschu tuckshop for steamed dumplings and vermicelli salads. Remember this is Melbourne Music Week after all, so be sure to head down to the free Lunchbox Sessions at the People’s Garden for a live outdoor gig from local emerging artists while you eat.

If you’re more of an early riser, you can enjoy your morning coffee coupled with live music at city cafes Little King, Cup of Truth, Switchboard and Captains of Industry.
