Event:
An all day festival not to be missed - for all ages
The Fremantle Folk Festival is aimed at families, this is the second year it is being held, and it is a celebration of the following:

Food
Music
Culture
All things Fremantle

This is a 12 hour event and will include a large outdoor stage, as well as the iconic Clancy's stage fully decked-out with lighting, visuals, decorations, roaming entertainers and so much more!

This year, the event promises to be even bigger and better than the last one, with some amazing acts joining in the fun and frivolities.



The world-renowned band, The Pigram Brothers will headline this year's festival, and they are a seven-piece Indigenous band from the pearling town of Broome. This will be their only show to celebrate the 20 year anniversary of their iconic and beloved album "Salt Water Country".


As well as this band, there will be the amazing talent of the likes of:

Kav Temperly (Eskimo Joe)


Soukouss Internationale
Toby Beard
Lloyd Spiegel
The Fling
Mitch King
Stella Donnelly
Timothy Nelson
Old Blood
Jim Fisher and the Hamilton Hillbillies
Bambuseae Rhythm Section
King of the Travellers
Carla Geneve
Dillip and the Davs
Racoo Charles with the Moke Folk
Dan Howls
Jack Davies and the Bush Chooks
Creatures of Habbit
DJ General Justice and more to be announced closer to the date

A new addition to the festival this year will be Circus WA and their Big Top!



Kids circus workshops will run throughout the day to keep the young ones active and entertained, and the west side of Princess May Park will a "KIDS ZONE" - this is where these young kids can chill out away from the noise of the stage.

There will also be face painters, Farmer Damian, nature play areas and many more kids activities! In short, there is something for the everyone in the whole family to enjoy. Night time the Big Top will transform into a third stage.

Then there will be the following as well:

Food vendors
Craft beer
Wine and cider stalls
Roaming entertainment
Night sky light installation and more.

This year's Fremantle Folk festival is certainly going to be the best day out you will have all year!



One of the things the public wanted and made the organisers aware of is a "family ticket" so that it will be a more affordable day out for all families - so this year, there WILL be a "family ticket".
