Date & time
1st of January 2015 at 5:00pm
Fremantle Arts Centre, 1 Finnerty Street, Fremantle
Now in its seventh year the New Year's Day concert at Fremantle Arts Centre is a date never to be missed, either as the perfect alternative to a New Year's Eve frenzy or the perfect antidote for one. Enjoy the absolute cream of local WA's national and global touring reggae, funk, soul, afro, dub & world music bands together for this special night. The sweet times are utterly guaranteed with great music, food stalls, cold booze, soft grass, warm sun turning sweet moon and a nicely priced ticket to boot.
WA's own bit of Sunshine. The perfect New Years Day band are back playing some super fresh new rockers they are about to release and the favourite jams from across their three classic albums. Expect an explosion of soul/reggae/funk/dub party monsters that make you feel good.
Grace Barbe Afro Kreol
Back from an album and extensive touring schedule in 2014 the fresh, funky tropical island, afro rhythm & soul of Grace Barbe is back where the love started – in Fremantle, Western Australia. This is world class super funky Afro Kreol.
Weapon Is Sound
Hot on the heels of their single and video release there is a big buzz about this reggae dub collective's brand of dubbed out, tripped out reggae. It is positive and awesome – a great combination.
This fresh Fremantle seven-piece that plays jazz-inflected hip hop grooves led by an MC. Tight when it should be and loose everywhere else, it's a closely interactive live jam – freestyling, grandiose horn harmonies, obnoxious synth leads... the works.
Earthlink Sound System
The Fisherman Style legends fill all the gaps between bands with their prime reggae/dancehall selections. In 2014 they celebrated their 100th Fisherman Style night so a great kick off to 2015!
