Town of Port Hedland and BHP
North West Festival 2018
This August, Port Hedland is once again preparing to host the region’s original and premier music event; The North West Festival. Presented by the Town of Port Hedland and BHP, the 2018 event will see local punters enjoy a 18+ Saturday Festival followed by the much loved family friendly Sunday Sundowner.
The North West Festival has been privy to some incredible talent since its inception back in 2012. The Rubens, Hilltop Hoods, Vance Joy, Peking Duk and Boy & Bear are just a few of the Australian legends who have graced the North West stage - and this year promises to be no different.
Without further ado we would like to introduce you to the artists making the trip to Port Hedland this August:
Bliss N Eso - Sheppard - Hands Like Houses - Abbe May
plus local acts to be announced!
From cutting edge hip hop to much loved indie pop and powerful alternative rock, this year’s event is sure to be a crowd pleaser. The highly anticipated North West Festival will be held at the iconic and picturesque Civic Centre Gardens.
Presented by Fortescue Metals Group, The North West Sundowner will be joining the Saturday Festival at the Civic Centre Gardens this year. Along with a range of great musical offerings the event will feature a series of kid's activities and performances which will wrap up what will no doubt be a memorable few days in the Pilbara. After a sell-out event last year, be sure to secure your tickets quickly! We could not think of a better way to round out the weekend.
Tickets for both days are now on sale via moshtix.com.au, 1300 GET TIX (438 849) and in person at the Civic Centre.
