The WA Day Festival is back, bigger and better than ever, with two huge days of free musical festivals confirmed for Sunday, 2 June and Monday, 3 June at Burswood Park.

In a first, a whole day of the festival will be devoted to celebrating and promoting local Western Australian artists – showcasing the best the State’s music scene has to offer.

Entry will be free for both days of music festivals – providing two full days of world-class music for Western Australians at no cost.

The Sunday music festival will feature Guy Sebastian, Eskimo Joe, The Waifs, Sneaky Sound System, End of Fashion and more.

Monday’s local music festival – delivered in partnership with RTRFM – will feature POND, Grievous Bodily Calm, Siobhan Cotchin, Maatakitj, Angie Colman, Joan & The Giants and Mia June.

Public transport will be also free across the network on both festival days, helping to make WA Day accessible to all.

The festival days will also include free carnival rides, more than 70 food trucks, drone and fireworks shows on both night, and other attractions for families.

Satellite events will be held across the State on WA Day, including in Albany, Carnarvon, Geraldton, Kalgoorlie, Northam and Fremantle, while mini festivals to celebrate WA will be held in Busselton on 8 June, Dampier on 15 June and Newman on 23 June.

The Cook Government has committed $2 million to support Celebrate WA’s WA Day festivities across WA this year, with Lotterywest providing a further $1.25 million.

Celebrate WA is a not-for-profit organisation responsible for promoting and organising the annual WA Day celebrations and Western Australian of the Awards.

As stated by Premier Roger Cook:

“WA Day gives every Western Australian an opportunity to celebrate our great State and everything that makes WA the best place to live.

“This WA Day, we’re putting on a massive two days of music and family fun – and it’ll all be free, so every Western Australian can head along.

“We’re putting local music front-and-centre this year, with a new festival dedicated to showcasing our world-class local music scene.

“I urge every Western Australian to head down to Burswood Park this WA Day long weekend, and take advantage of the State’s biggest and best free music festival.”
