Syd­ney act for Ex­mouth fes­ti­val

Pilbara News - - Front Page - Louise Alling­ham

Ex­mouth is set for a hot line-up of acts at this year’s Nin­ga­loo Whale Shark Fes­ti­val.

Bands, fire acts and aerial dis­plays are on the agenda to keep pun­ters of all ages en­ter­tained.

Syd­ney band Car­a­vana Sun are this year’s head­line act who will have crowds danc­ing all night with their surf rock tunes.

The Car­a­vana Sun boys have spent the past cou­ple of years tak­ing their mu­sic to fes­ti­vals in the Nether­lands, Por­tu­gal, Aus­tralia, Malta and Switzer­land.

How­ever, band mem­ber Luke Carra said they were no strangers to the WA coast.

“We’ve been com­ing over for the last few years and had some re­ally great shows and sup­port from peo­ple on the West coast since day dot,” he said.

The band also recorded their most re­cent al­bum set for re­lease in June in Fre­man­tle.

Carra said the band was “pumped” to per­form at the fes­ti­val and swim with the whale sharks.

“We’ve al­ways wanted to come up to Ex­mouth and see the whales and swim with them, which we’re ac­tu­ally go­ing to be lucky enough to do, so when we were in­vited to come up we were pretty stoked,” he said.

Also per­form­ing at the fes­ti­val will be three-piece fi­esta band Kal­l­i­dad.

Kal­l­i­dad will kick off celebrations at the Gala Open­ing Fes­ti­val on May 27 at the Nin­ga­loo Novo­tel Re­sort.

Talan­jee Oval will see fire, ac­ro­batic, com­edy group Zap Cir­cus give au­di­ences a show.

The Nin­ga­loo whale Shark Fes­ti­val will be held from May 25-29.

Car­a­vana Sun will have au­di­ences danc­ing at Cadil­lac's Bar on May 28.

Zap Cir­cus are a hot act for the Fes­ti­val Day.
