Sunset Events are thrilled to announce the return of the North West Festival for 2013. The inaugural event, launched in August last year was deemed a huge success with positive feedback pouring in from attendees, media, stakeholders, stallholders and artists alike.

We're very pleased to be returning to the Port Hedland Turf Club, again offering an awesome day of fun times, free camping facilities and an absolutely HUGE line up. So lock out the diaries for Saturday 24th August and get ready for these incredible artists to blast into town.

Port Hedland is one of the key towns in the Pilbara region of WA and boasts the largest tonnage export port in the world. Considered the centre of the Pilbara, Port Hedland is pivotal to delivering benefits to the economic position of our fair state and country. The awareness and growth of the town is growing exponentially due to the sheer quantity of resources exported from the Port.

The region features stunning natural landscapes with a primary colour palette of red, blue and gold. This truly unique town is synonymous with its red dirt, a border of ocean and stunning native flora.

The town boasts a long history with the original inhabitants, the Karriyarra people naming the area Marapikurrinya, for the hand shaped formation of creeks off the natural harbour. Indigenous rock art can be explored, and the town offers a wide range of leisure activities including fishing, whale watching and observation of the annual protected flatback turtle nesting.

One of WA's most stunning national parks, Karijini is very close by, as is Millstream National Park. Tourism destinations such as Broome are a mere half-day drive away. Port Hedland features an international airport and is a short flight from Perth and South East Asia.

We're pleased to announce that we will be offering camping facilities to those keen to head to the event from towns outside Port Hedland. We encourage you to bring a swag or tent, pull up a patch and take advantage of the toilet and shower facilities on offer.

We're also very happy to advise that camping is included in the ticket price. More information on what is on offer and the conditions associated with camping at the festival will be available on our website in the coming weeks.

Please note that those who do camp will not be able to move their vehicles from the camp grounds until 6AM the following morning. More details will be available upon ticket purchase.

For those out of towners, we strongly advise you to take advantage of the free camping facilities on offer as accommodation in Port Hedland, as you may be aware, is extremely tight. However, if you do wish to investigate this option, we suggest heading here http://www.accommodationporthedland.com
