New, free live music event Global Rhythms brings some of the nation’s hottest artists to the recently opened Prahran Square
A new one-day music event is coming to Prahran Square in March, featuring a line-up of diverse contemporary music artists and beat-makers fresh from the summer music festival circuit. With live music, DJs and unique eats on offer from businesses in and around the Square, the inaugural free Global Rhythms event will further cement Prahran Square as a premier cultural and recreational destination within the City of Stonnington.
