Sweetstock Festival

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 festival ground, with the SBS Food Australian Cake Battle showcasing some of Australia’s best bakers live on stage in a 60 minute battle, alongside the Australian Dessert Championship for anyone to enter.

Teams of three, from home cooks to professionals will challenge each other in various categories, including Cupcake, Cheesecake, Pavlova, Pie Tart and Chef’s Choice. Each competition will win a delicious $5,000.00. If you want to learn for the best then get in quick to register for the masterclass with America’s most sought after cake makers, Duff Goldman. Renowned for his crazy over the top masterpieces, he will be hosting a one off masterclass on the Friday, and will be appearing throughout the festival over the weekend.

For those who love to eat rather than bake, there is a competition for you too! Enter the Donut Throwdown to pop as many donuts into your belly within 3 minutes to win a cheeky $2,000.00. Easy! Is that too much sugary action to pack into two days you may ask? Absolutely not. As well as
that there are show-bags, a sweet expo, live art, retro car show, free kids rides and thankfully for the parents there’s bubbly and cider!
