North West Telegraph - - Lifestyle - Sophia Con­stan­tine

An ex­cit­ing line-up of mu­sic artists will take to the stage in Kar­ratha as the Beats In The Heat fes­ti­val re­turns this year.

The 18-and-over fes­ti­val, to be held on Satur­day, May 5, co­in­cides with the open­ing week of the new Red Earth Arts Precinct.

Or­gan­iser Bart Par­sons said fes­ti­val-go­ers could ex­pect a day of di­verse, ex­cit­ing and cut­ting-edge acts af­ter a one-year hia­tus.

He said it was an ex­cit­ing op­por­tu­nity to host the first event to go past mid­night at the new venue.

“It’s an amaz­ing the­atre,” he said. “The venue and size of it will suit the ca­pac­ity of Kar­ratha and the ap­petite they have for it (the fes­ti­val).”

He said the line-up had been se­lected to cater for the di­verse de­mo­graphic in the Pil­bara.

“Our re­turn line-up boasts of a colour­ful ar­ray of Aus­tralian artists,” he said.

“Draw­ing on our coun­try’s rich and raw tal­ent of DJs from Perth to Syd­ney, we have your mu­sic taste cov­ered.”

One Day DJs, who have been widely re­garded as Aus­tralia’s premier hip-hop party crew, will per­form at the fes­ti­val along­side other Aus­tralian acts Pil­er­ats DJs, Tw­erl, Kid Kenobi, Yung Sly, Panda, Ten Deep and Jye White­man. Lo­cal acts in­clude Knew, Corey David, Harri Gray, Lachy Mackay, El Barto, Sam Le, Fred Ket­tlewell, Clag, Lace Em Tight and Markey.

Mr Par­sons said fes­ti­val-go­ers could also ex­pect top-qual­ity food, a fully li­censed bar and a silent disco. To buy tick­ets, visit
