Music lovers lap up hot beats, cool times
More than 1500 locals turned out to see some of the biggest names in Australian hip-hop and rock ‘n’ roll at the inaugural Beats in the Heat all-ages music festival earlier this month.
Spread across two massive stages at the Karratha Leisureplex, the line-up included Aussie emcees Illy and Allday, former Grinspoon frontman Phil Jamieson and the crazy stage antics of Regurgitator.
The musicians were also joined by electronic producers SAFIA, Paces and Tom Piper, who were supported by local DJs Panda, Adam Hankinson, Genga, Jack T Harri Grey, Lace em Tight and Corey David.
Student DJ competition winners Fred Kettlewell and Brandon Saena opened the festival, after taking out the Beats in the Park competition at the Youth Shed on August 1.
Festival organiser Bart Parsons said he looked forward to bringing an even bigger and better Beats in the Heat Festival to Karratha in 2016.
