Sweetstock launches in Melbourne 2020
Sweetstock is a totally new food and music festival experience that will put you on the sugar
high of your life!
In its inaugural year, Sweetstock will launch in Melbourne on the 28th-29th March 2020,
filled with cake battles, dessert challenges, decadent food trucks and special guest Duff
Goldman from Charm City Cakes (USA). Along with street performers and circus acts, there
is also an awesome music line-up to dance into the neon filled night.
Headlining the festival will be dance duo Sneaky Sound System, with upbeat electronic artist
Alice Ivy, aptly named indie band Jawbreakers and the crazy Melbourne pop stars
Approachable Members Of Your Local Community. More acts to be announced.
And don’t think the weekend is all sweetness and love, the competition is fierce in this

Tart and Chef’s Choice. Each competition will win a delicious $5,000.00.
