Festival Food

The Festival Hub at Carriageworks

Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, and open from 8.30am–8pm, Thursday–Sunday at the Festival Hub.

Whether you’re popping in for a single session or settling in for a full day of sessions – it’s not just your minds that are in for some serious nourishment at the Festival.

Did we mention there would be a sausage sizzle at Carriageworks on the day of the election?


First things first: freshly roasted coffee. We’re serving Little Marionette coffee at the Corner Cafe and enjoy coffee from Bar Positano, Bar Coco and Loggerhead over at the Festival Precinct.

Little Marionette’s coffee cups are 100% plastic-free, recyclable and compostable – just pop them in one of our recycling bins when you’re done. Or bring a reusable coffee cup!


To help you stay hydrated throughout the day, we have water stations at Carriageworks where you can refill your water bottle.


The Precinct has a wide array of pop-up eateries. Stop by the Corner Cafe for sandwiches, pastries, and Sri Lankan-inspired options by the Fold Cafe. There's an abundance of options in the Blacksmith's Workshop and at the Festival Hub in Bay 22, with scrumptious selections from Agape Organic Foods, Bar Positano, Firepop, Greek Street Food Truck and Broomfields Pies.

From the Bar

For your afternoon tipple, take your pick from one of the many Festival bars around the Precinct. We're serving Archie Rose gin, Atomic beers and Bunnamagoo wines at the Theatre Bar, Corner Cafe and Festival Hub.
