Leading musos bound for North West Festival
From up-and-coming Aussie rapper Allday, to indie folk legend Xavier Rudd, the 2016 North West Festival line-up announcement is set to appeal to a variety of Pilbara music lovers.
They will join headline act The Rubens, You am I, Sarah Blasko, the Veronicas, Shockone, Urthboy, Salmonella Dub, Harts, Methyl Ethel and a range of local acts for the Pilbara’s premier music festival, from August 19 -21.
Town of Port Hedland chief executive Mal Osborne said it was exciting to see such a high calibre of artists announced to hit the stage in Hedland.
“North West Music Weekender brings entertainment, culture and an opportunity for local business to showcase what they have to offer to the visitors who travel specifically for the event,” he said.
“This is a great opportunity for our local town to take advantage of the economic boost the festival brings and really celebrate and support this popular event.”
Mr Osborne said the North West Music Weekender fringe events would be making a return from the success of last year, adding there would also be some exciting new additions.
“The much-loved Sunday Sundowner will move to its new home at the Port Hedland Yacht Club and with festival gates opening slightly later, allowing festival-goers the opportunity to enjoy the fringe events on offer across town,” he said.
North West Festival first release tickets go on sale at 9am today and can be purchased from www.moshtix. com.au or 1300 438 849.
Festival-goers can purchase single or multi-day tickets, as well as the choice to camp at the Port Hedland Turf Club.
