After a difficult year for residents living in the Blacktown LGA, January's FUNPARK Festival couldn't have come at a better time. FUNPARK transformed Bidwill Square and surrounds into a vibrant outdoor event celebrating local music, dance, film and creativity that left no-one in doubt of the extraordinary talent coming out of Western Sydney.
The 2022 FUNPARK Festival featured an incredible line-up, showcasing some of Western Sydney's best artists, including one of the most exciting and powerful new rappers in Australian music BARKAA; RNB and smooth soul vocalist Clarissa Mei; Street University's hip hop dance group The Pioneers Mega Crew; Mt Druitt soul flavoured hip-hop favourite Manifold; Fairfield's Dauntless Movement Crew combining tricking, b-boying (breakdancing), parkour and acrobatics; MATAVAI Pacific Cultural Arts, showcasing Pacific Islander culture through dance, drumming and music; the beautiful Mount Druitt Aboriginal dance group Garabara; the young poetic songstress from Greater West Sydney SPVRROW; MRVZ celebrating Western Sydney through his hip hop; and Gemma Navarrete a Western Sydney based musician who creates RNB/pop infused music with concise, poetic lyrics plus so much more.
