Pil­bara bands do bat­tle for Beats in the Heat

Pilbara News - - News - Louise Alling­ham

Pil­bara mu­si­cians and bands will have the op­por­tu­nity to play on the main stage at the year’s Beats in the Heat fes­ti­val.

A Bat­tle of the Bands com­pe­ti­tion will be held on this Satur­day, June 18, at the Kar­ratha Tav­ern from 7pm.

There will be $5 en­try at the door for those wish­ing to come along.

A panel of judges will de­cide who gets to share the stage with acts such as Bri­tish In­dia, the Cat Em­pire and Drapht.

Event or­gan­iser Bart Par­sons en­cour­ages bands and mu­si­cians with “a lit­tle bit of tal­ent and/or a sense of hu­mour” to ap­ply and hopes the com­pe­ti­tion will give the win­ning act some great ex­po­sure to kick-start their ca­reer.

All money raised the event will go to Lo­cal In­for­ma­tion Net­work Kar­ratha, a not-for­profit or­gan­i­sa­tion which aims to em­power par­ents through ed­u­ca­tion and sup­port.

Event or­gan­iser Bart Par­sons said he chose to do­nate to LINK be­cause they are both an im­por­tant and lo­cal cause.

“They fit our de­mo­graphic and help chil­dren and fam­i­lies over­come a range of is­sues,” he said.

Bands want­ing to en­ter need to email bart@blanchebar.com.au by to­mor­row.

Beats in the Heat is a two-day all-ages camp­ing and mu­sic fes­ti­val held at Kar­ratha En­ter­tain­ment Cen­tre from June 24-25.

Head­lin­ers in­clude John Wil­liamson, Yolanda Be Cool, Pot­belleez, KLP and Mashd N Kutcher.

A lineup of lo­cals acts has been added to the bill in­clud­ing Panda, Genga and Corey David.

There will be camp­ing avail­able as well as a silent disco which will go into the early hours of the morn­ing, beer and wine tents, food ven­dors and mar­ket stalls.
