Music in the Park
Local parks came to life with the sounds of families and friends enjoying the 2019 Music in the Park concert series. The series opened at Falkland Park, Kinross on Saturday 12 January 2019 led by Brisbane based Cheap Fakes performing their unique blend of soul-soaked, brass-fuelled pop, funk and ska. Local band The Isolites also took to the stage recreating the early pre-reggae sounds of ska, rocksteady and calypso, inspired by the 60’s sounds of Jamaica and the Caribbean.
The series continued on Saturday 2 March 2019 returning to the popular Mawson Park in Hillary’s. Mama Kin Spender treated audiences to their soulful blend of folk, blues and roots with special guests the West Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) Gospel Choir. Upcoming Fremantle based band The Hunting Birds opened the concert with their genre-defying blend of heartfelt folk and exhilarating rock energy.
Music in the Park will return to local parks within the City of Joondalup in summer 2020, dates will be available on this page in the coming months.
