You Am I front­man Tim Rogers has been an­nounced as the head­line act at this year’s North West Fes­ti­val Sundowner. Port Hed­land Yacht Club will host an evening of laid-back mu­sic on Sun­day, Au­gust 21, to close the North West Fes­ti­val. Rogers said he was look­ing for­ward to play­ing a more re­laxed gig af­ter his set with You Am I at the North West Fes­ti­val. “(I put) more at­ten­tion into lyrics and singing a bit bet­ter be­cause of­ten with a rock and roll show you don’t let fi­nesse get in the way of a good time,” he said.

“Even though the en­ergy level may ap­pear to be less than with a rock and roll show … there’s a dif­fer­ent in­ten­sity to it be­cause there’s ac­tu­ally the pos­si­bil­ity that peo­ple are lis­ten­ing and I just try and put as much into them.”

Hav­ing grown up in WA and toured the coun­try ex­ten­sively, Rogers said he was no stranger to the Pil­bara and en­joyed play­ing to re­gional crowds.

Join­ing Rogers at the sundowner will be Pan­ics front­man Jae Laf­fer, the Ele­phant and the Cof­fee Table and Tanya Ran­som.

There will also be fam­ily friendly ac­tiv­i­ties, in­clud­ing a bouncy cas­tle, face paint­ing and rov­ing per­form­ers. There will be per­for­mances from The Rubens, Sarah Blasko, The Veron­i­cas, Urth­boy, Harts and many more.

Sundowner tick­ets are avail­able from Port Hed­land Vis­i­tor Cen­tre, South Hed­land Li­brary or north­west­fes­ti­
