Les Tambours de Feu – free opening weekend celebration, 6 octobre 2016 20:30, Federation Square
Come join us celebrate the opening weekend of the Festival with Basque company Deabru Beltzak and the local tradition of the Correfoc (fire-run).
The drums set your pulse racing. The flames blur your vision. The smell of burning could be the fireworks, or perhaps the devil walks the streets of Melbourne tonight. Far more than a concert, Les Tambours de Feu will propel you headlong on a dizzy parade through Melbourne city.
Starting at Federation Square at 8.30pm and running over three nights from Thu 06—Sat 08 October. This is a family friendly, free public event.
