If you’ve never exchanged the words ‘Magic’, ‘Red-Eye’, ‘Piccolo or ‘Double Rizz’ with your barista of a morning, then clearly you’re not a Melburnian. But fear not, there’ll be amble opportunity to consult the caffeine-dealer like a local at Face The Music’s pre-summit showcase each morning in the Melbourne Music Week Hub appropriately titled ‘Coffee Snobs’. Thursday November 23 will see Hachiku do the honour of christening the outdoor stage at the top of the summit and on Friday November 24 we’ll welcome Perth’s Stella Donnelly to do the same.
