Sugar Mountain Festival, ‘A Summit of Music and Art’, returned to the Victorian College of the Arts in Southbank for the third year. This boutique one day festival beautifully merges art and music in and around the brick buildings and laneways of the VCA campus and definitely knows how to draw a crowd, with around 5,500 punters showing up on 21 January. We were there to soak up the atmosphere by checking out the art installations and enjoying the epic lineup of bands (while sinking a few tinnies in the sun).
