Point Walter’s Big Line-Up
The City’s annual Point Walter Concert promises a big line-up of entertainment and family fun when it returns to the Point Walter foreshore on Sunday, 5 March 2017.
In its 22nd year, the free family concert has become a Labour Day long weekend tradition, with locals and visitors setting up on the grass banks of the Point Walter reserve to enjoy an evening of live music, dance, family entertainment and fireworks.
City of Melville Mayor Russell Aubrey said the annual event always demonstrated the strong community spirit of the City of Melville.
“It’s always a wonderful sight to see such huge crowds gather at the beautiful Point Walter reserve, enjoying the free entertainment and community vibe” Mayor Aubrey said.
“This year’s concert promises to be spectacular with an impressive line-up of acts and MC favourite Tod Johnston returning as host for the evening,”
“There will be plenty of activities for children including face painting, balloon twisting and a bouncy castle, and a firework finale over the Swan River always proving a family favourite,”
The line-up for the evening includes a traditional opening performance by The Wadumbah Dance Group followed by performances by four local Perth bands including The Emily Joy Trio, Timothy Nelson and the Infidels, The Jesse Gordon Quartet, and headline act PROOF the band bringing a ten-piece big band to the stage.
