Music in the Park
Music in the Park will return to local parks within the City of Joondalup in 2021. Seacrest Park and Falkland Park will come to life over summer with the sounds of families and friends enjoying live music, free children’s activities and delicious food from curated food trucks. As the sun begins to set the stage will come alive with talented musicians performing music spanning diverse genres.
A COVID safe capacity crowd of 5,000 people attended the City’s first Music in the Park concert of 2021 at Seacrest Park, Sorrento.
Headliner Katy Steele and support acts Death By Denim and Lu Ci put on a show to remember as the local community embraced the opportunity to enjoy a night of FREE music under the stars.
It was the first time Seacrest Park has hosted a Music in the Park concert and the crowd got in early for the best vantage point to check out West Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) band, Lu Ci, deliver their funk infused set.
There was plenty of children’s entertainment on offer and the food trucks proved popular throughout the night for those who did not pack a picnic.

Headline act – Dulcie
It was at the reputable Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) in 2018 that the stars completely aligned, and the melodious, smooth sound of Dulcie was born. Dulcie isn’t just defying normality in terms of genre. Refusing to accept that there can only be one lead singer, they interchange between three vocalists, which makes their sound even more distinctive. But this rebellion has proved advantageous for Dulcie. Their idiosyncratic style immediately turned heads at Triple J, and Ocean Alley dubbed their soulful debut single Fall their favourite track of 2019. The band’s effortlessly cool energy and quirkiness is amplified at their live gigs.
Support act – Coterie
Coterie is a band of brothers from Perth who grew up on their parents hand-me-down RnB mixtapes and fell in love with the electric sounds of Jimmy Hendrix guitars.
Tyler, Joshua, Brandford & Conrad encompass an authenticity often lost in modern music, Their blend of indi rock meets pop is shared through records made in their lounge-room, telling stories via lyrics drawn from real life experiences with melodically rich vocals that bring a raw narrative heat to the songs, their live shows harness a lifetime of musical blood that evokes feeling, one that you can only get when 16 years of jamming simply speaks for itself.
Opening act – Anna Schneider
Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts Singer-Songwriter Anna Schneider expertly crafts an honest and heartfelt set of dreamy indie-pop and confessional folk original songs. Her angel-like vocals and celtic lilt find Anna performing across Perth.
