This year WA's top country/rock show band, Renegade, will be the headline act for the Livelighter Harvey Harvest Festival.
Their line-up will have some of the finest performances, and it will be FREE to see them perform.
The band will perform hits from artists including Foo Fighters, Van Morrison, Billy Ray Cyrus, The Pogues, Fleetwood Mac, Queen, Johnny Cash, T Rex, Lilly Allen, Cold Chisel, The Doobie Brothers, John Denver, Chuck Berry, Creedence, The Beatles, Neil Diamond, The Eagles, Paul Kelly, Elvis, Tom Petty and many more.
While Renegade will give great renditions of country classics and re-worked pop/rock favourites, they will also perform their own original country style songs.
The group will be on the main stage in Snells Park during the festival, so make sure you don't miss out on this free performance and mark the date on your calendar!
