ICONIC pop-rock band Killing Heidi and the Aus­tralia’s Got

Tal­ent alumni Justice Crew will kick off the City of Gos­nells’ 2018 Home­grown Fes­ti­val at the Il­lu­mi­nate Night Party.

Open­ing the month-long fes­ti­val, the free tick­eted event will fea­ture two Aus­tralian acts who left their mark on the mu­sic scene from 5pm-9pm at Gos­nells Oval on Satur­day, Fe­bru­ary 17.

Killing Heidi burst on to the mu­sic scene with their 2000 al­bum Re­flec­tor, which fea­tured Aus­tralian num­ber 1 hit

Mas­cara and top-10 sin­gles Weir and Live With­out It, ac­cen­tu­ated by Ella Hooper’s dis­tinct vo­cals and Jesse Hooper’s catchy gui­tars.

Af­ter a decade-long hia­tus, the sib­lings an­nounced the band would re­form in 2016 to cel­e­brate its 20th an­niver­sary – which makes their per­for­mance just their sec­ond in Perth in over 12 years.

Orig­i­nally a dance troupe, Justice Crew wowed au­di­ences on Aus­tralia’s Got Tal­ent in 2010 be­fore go­ing to record num­ber 1 hits Boom

Boom and Que Sera while sup­port­ing the likes of One Di­rec­tion, Janet Jack­son and

Ke­sha. In ad­di­tion to the main­stage ex­cite­ment, rov­ing per­form­ers, dis­counted car­ni­val rides, live art paint­ing with Mel McVee and de­li­cious food will en­sure there’s something for the whole fam­ily.

The Il­lu­mi­nate Night Party is just the tip of the ice­berg for Home­grown Fes­ti­val, which prom­ises a month of fun events from Fe­bru­ary 17 on­wards.

Fol­low­ing Il­lu­mi­nate, four weeks of events will show­case the vi­brancy of the City of Gos­nells com­mu­nity, fea­tur­ing ev­ery­thing from eco ad­ven­tures, gas­tro­nomic ex­pe­ri­ences, live mu­sic, art, to well­be­ing work­shops, chil­dren’s ac­tiv­i­ties and plenty of op­por­tu­ni­ties to try or learn something new.

To wrap pro­ceed­ings up is the ever-pop­u­lar Lit­tle Scrib­blers event on March 17, which has a science theme this year.

Vis­i­tors are en­cour­aged to don their lab coats and safety glasses to have fun and learn through ex­per­i­ments, astron­omy and foren­sics.
