Stars set to rock reboot of Fremantle Festival

This media release just hit the streets:
Powderfinger’s Bernard Fanning, The Drones and the charismatic Dan Sultan lead the charge as a dynamic collection of Australia’s top musical talent come together for this year’s pocket rocket Fremantle Festival from Friday 28 October 2016.
Waleed Aly, Stan Grant and Clementine Ford provide the brain candy in the ten day program, which is packed with visual art, music and theatre.
With its own pop-up artisan-built bar-cum-festival-hub PegLeg2 and the activation of stunning venues like the Fremantle Town Hall, Fremantle Arts Centre and St John’s Anglican Church, the revamped Fremantle Festival program is set to firmly stake its place in Perth’s festival calendar.
City of Fremantle Arts and Culture Manager Pete Stone said the new-look event is designed to provide a fascinating, high-quality program of 40+ events and experiences in ten days.
“We are so excited about the evolution of this festival which is full of quality events and brand new concepts such as The State Collection which unites art and community in a truly exceptional exhibition – art of the people, by the people, for the people,” he said.
Wardarnji Aboriginal cultural celebration, the Children’s Fiesta and Freo’s famous Street Parade will draw the crowds alongside musical highlights Timothy Nelson, Clare Bowditch, Tijuana Cartel, The Stems, Tonight Live! – a celebration hosted by pop siren Abbe May and contemporary classical performances from ARIA winning pianist Tamara-Anna Cislowska, soprano Louise Page and virtuoso violinist Alexandre da Costa.
Tickets for are now available and the hard copy program will launch in September.

    Clementine Ford? Brain candy? As a ratepayer I am offended that this so called social commentator is involved in the festival. When she isn’t being vile she is denigrating people with disabilities such as the recent incident involving the autistic man. She is vile.
