Johnston Street Spanish Festival

Last month the Spanish Festival was celebrated in Melbourne. Not strictly a music show, but since there was music and I am Spanish myself, I decided to include in my documentary of the Melbourne music scene. The festival itself it´s a celebration of the ‘Hispanidad’, that represents the Spanish and South-Central American cultures, including around 21 countries. Since there are not that many Spaniards down under, it is majorly South and Central America, and it is so popular that it is nearly impossible to walk on the street.

There was latin music, salsa dancing, delicious street food and a stage with a few bands. We sneaked in the Spanish Club and stood next to the bar bench sipping Alhambra beer and ‘anis’ shots. After a while, we realised it was still 7pm and we needed some food to sober up.  We walked up and down Johnston Street a couple of times, and then decided to get some Colombian slow cooked marinated beef ribs that were absolutely amazing. Then a few drinks, then some more at the Night Cat, and then home. 

It was good fun.

Thanks for reading.
