Steele to headline first Music in the Park concert


The City of Joondalup is rocking the suburbs again in 2021 as its popular Music in the Park concert returns to two of the City’s most picturesque parks.

Perth music icon Katy Steele will headline the first gig at Seacrest Park, Sorrento on Saturday 16 January.

Supported by Death by Denim, the ARIA Award nominated singer/songwriter and guitarist, who also fronts Little Birdy, is no stranger to big gigs with career highlights including performances at the Big Day Out and touring with the likes of REM, Bright Eyes and Richard Ashcroft.

Steele’s vocal range has been compared to PJ Harvey and Chrissie Hynde.

Death by Denim is a four-piece alternative indie act, renowned for their high energy shows and for wearing outlandish combinations of denim on stage.

Joondalup Mayor Albert Jacob said Music in the Park had been a mainstay of the City’s summer calendar of events for many years and the series remained as popular as ever with local families.

“What a coup it is for the City to attract an artist of the pedigree of Katy Steele to perform for our residents in a spectacular outdoor setting,” he said.

“Performing with Death by Denim, both acts are sure to kick off this year’s concert series with a bang.”

The second concert will be held at Falkland Park, Kinross on Saturday 6 March, featuring headline act Dulcie, an all-female indie-pop quartet.

Talented students from the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts will open each concert from 5.30pm. Food trucks at both venues will be available from 5.00pm. Concert-goers can also bring their own picnic hampers. A range of free children’s activities and roving entertainment will also be available for families to enjoy.

The City will continue to monitor all relevant directions relating to COVID-19 and will follow the appropriate State Government advice.

Music in the Park is made possible by premier partner Healthway – promoting the Make Smoking History message, key partner Primewest and media partners Joondalup Times and Nova937.
