Pilbara News - - Pilbara News - Court­ney Fowler

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.

Xavier Rudd will per­form at the 2016 North West Fes­ti­val in Au­gust.
