One epic summer of free music

27 October 2021

The City of Melville is thrilled to introduce our biggest live music series yet – Melville Summer Music.

The City of Melville is thrilled to introduce our biggest live music series yet – Melville Summer Music.

It’s going to be hot in the City this summer with nine Saturday early evening concerts from November to March, featuring performances from some of the best artists in WA across four stunning outdoor spaces in Melville.

The concerts, which will run from Saturday, 13 November through to Saturday, 26 March, will be family-friendly affairs celebrating the best of summer - outdoor picnics, food trucks and live music, all against the backdrop of a beautiful sunset.

Melville Summer Music is an evolution and expansion of our much-loved Limestone Concert series.  Spanning the genres of blues, indie, pop, afrobeat, rock and roots, the program, curated by Duncan Strachan, features something for everyone and provides an opportunity to discover a new favourite artist.

The line-up of West Australian talent includes: deep soul blues rock outfit Old Blood; Indoor Fins, the self-described ‘super pop’ project of WA song-writing genius Timothy Nelson; Natalie Gillespie, known for her soul sass swinging blues; whimsical bluegrass country folk trio Frank’s Fish Tank; singer-songwriter Grace Barbé and her Afro-Kreol band;  alt country Americana rock five piece The Little Lord Street Band;  and young WA musician Claudia Tero’s indie rock and folk project Claudie Joy & The Joy Boys.

Also performing over summer are alternative blues rock outfit Dan Howls; Fremantle based rockers Lincoln MacKinnon and the Wrecking Train; indie-rock favourite Tanaya Harper; alt-country/rock singer songwriter and WAM Song of the Year 2021 winner Siobhan Cotchin; and Odette Mercy & Her Soul Atomics whose heavy soul/funk sounds will close out the program in spectacular style.

City of Melville Mayor the Hon. George Gear JP encouraged families to mark Saturdays in their diary and head down to one of four iconic Melville locations – Yagan Mia Wireless Hill Park, Kadidjiny Park, Limestone Amphitheatre and Piney Lakes Reserve – to enjoy a picnic or food trucks while soaking up the sunset and listening to live music.

“Melville Summer Music is part of the City of Melville’s evolving arts program aimed at making the city a more liveable, enjoyable, healthy and lively place by presenting great arts programming for residents and the wider Perth area,” said Mayor Gear. 

City of Melville Creative Producer Arts and Culture Pete Stone said Melville Summer Music was a wonderful opportunity for everyone from Melville and beyond to come along for some free entertainment for the whole family.

“Whether they are existing fans of our performers or looking to discover a new favourite band, it’s a great chance for people to catch home grown artists in some of Melville’s most beautiful spaces,” said Mr Stone.

“We are exceptionally proud of the wealth of WA talent we have performing for us this summer and encourage everyone – regardless of what postcode they live in - to grab a picnic blanket and come join us.”

Melville Summer Music series will adhere with current State Government COVID restrictions. No tickets are required for these events.
