The Blackout Experience (Ubuntu) is a vibrant display of music and fashion to celebrate in meaningful ways what it means to be a proud Victorian

About this Event


  • Blackout Experience of Ubuntu is a powerful and vibrant display of all things that encourage Victorian people who identify as BIPOC and their allies to come together to celebrate in meaningful ways what it means to be a proud Victorian.
  • The event is indeed a celebration of Ubuntu, the Spirit of human solidarity. Blackout Experience takes place during an important month of March to coincide with International Women’s Day as well as Victorian Multicultural Commission’s Cultural Diversity Week. Through our lineup we aim to not only celebrate women but elevate and acknowledge the Black and Brown experiences as well as promote access tolerance and diversity within the community at large.

Yo CiTY will curate an exclusive musical experience on stage featuring SahidaSoju GangThatKidMaz , IjaleBrotha AsantiLe Fleur, OJ Kush (AMIN PAYNEFelix MeredithTentendoJoshua Azriel), Royalty NoiseTemgazi (Zulu Gal)
