Melbourne Cup Carnival is fast approaching and this season, Frontier Events have teamed up with Victorian Racing Club to erect a custom-built stage and entertainment precinct and playground called The Park (fit for 3,000 people) that will host a stellar line-up of local artists.
The Rubens, City Calm Down and soul band Cookin’ on 3 Burners will provide the heat and kick the carnival into motion on AAMI Derby Day, Saturday October 29. For Emirates Melbourne Cup Day, Tuesday November 1, Aussie pop-icon Betty Who will perform followed by Marcia Hines.
