Reservoir is a suburb known for its fighting spirit. We’ve never been ones to give up and we’re not about to start now – even if there is a pandemic going on. Whether it’s a neighbour mowing your nature strip as well as his own, or motivational quotes in chalk that adorn the footpaths encouraging you to keep up the good work , Reservoirans know that even though this year is a bit of a bin-fire, there’s no way we’re going to let it get us down.
Drawing on this for inspiration, the Reservoir Stomp music festival has decided not to let 2020 get them down, either. On Sunday November 29, the Reservoir Stomp will move online to present Rez Stomp TV.
Rez Stomp TV is a colourful 4-hour digital offering that disrupts the idea of live stream and reimagines the notion of a festival. It will combine live music performance, variety show aesthetics, Monty Pythonesque absurdism and vibrant suburban pre-recorded content to engage and entertain all ages online via Vimeo. Faithful to the in-person Reservoir Stomp festival which has been selling out the Preston-Reservoir Bowls Club since 2016, Rez Stomp TV will celebrate the history and continuity of community life in Reservoir, and amplify Melbourne’s northern suburbs as a hot-bed of creativity that Victoria – and the rest of the world – should take notice of.
