The Latin Quarter

SUNDAY 9th February 2020
12.30pm – 8.00pm

Australia’s biggest beach celebration turns 40 and MELBOURNE SALSA is a part of it!

Every year for the last 17 years we’ve staged The Latin Quarter at the festival,
which is now an integral part of the event attracting thousands of people throughout the afternoon.

This year Melbourne Salsa is proudly celebrating 20 years of salsa classes and events,
the Melbourne Salsa team of local and international instructors invite you to take a class and enjoy the live Salsa band

The Latin Quarter is an afternoon of fun and laughter for the whole family, a Festival Sunday stage not to be missed.

Featuring Latin band ‘CALLE LUNA’ playing some of the finest dance floor classics
and to wrap up 7 hours of non-stop Latin dance and music, Frankie B will rock your socks off with his Miami Style Latin House set.
