There will be French hip hop and break-dancing crew Surprise Effect. In addition, there will be global street festival favourites Dynamike, a stuntman and comedian who juggles chainsaws while balancing on a unicycle; Theakre Von Zairno, an aerialist performing breath-taking stunts on a static trapeze and aerial silks; and John Hicks, a charismatic painter who will amaze crowds with a repertoire of artistic oddities.

In between world-class acts, visitors can find world-class shopping options across 1,300 stores.
