Reclink Community Cup 2017
|A questionably skilled Aussie-rules match between Melbourne's music community (The Rockdogs) and community radio stations PBS and Triple R FM (The Megahertz) with a line-up bigger than anything we have seen before at Reclink Community Cup! |
Kicking off on Sunday 25 June 2017 the Melbourne leg will settle into its new home at Collingwood's heart of football Victoria Park bringing the good-vibing winter-braving sports-loving punters north side to the broadcasters' home turf and making the national theme this year absolutely fitting.
Spiderbait The Peep Tempel Jen Cloher and REMI will all perform live sets along with Aussie legends Deborah Conway and Willy Zygier with She Said Zed performing 'Streets of Your Town' - a tribute to The Go-Betweens and the 2017 theme.
For the big and little kids alike the original cardboard warriors Boxwars will bring destruction to the Community Cup field for the first time before Murray Wiggle and Wally Meanie get the crowd dancing with the Bubblegum Machine.
Supported by loyal volunteers funds raised help provide programs for some of the community's most disadvantaged members. Reclink Australia delivers specialist sport recreation and arts programs for at-risk youth people with mental illness or disability people experiencing homelessness and domestic violence and those facing alcohol gambling and substance addictions.
So brave the cold and get amongst it this winter it's sure to be a cracking day!
