After an arduous couple of years we’ve all come to realise that what we can truly rely on is our people, our tribe, our friends, our families, our communities and our neighbourhoods. It is the little real things that bring warmth and make us feel good. So what better way to start a year that almost defines hope, 2023, with the sweetest little annual New Years Day gathering on earth, right here in Fremantle WA. The legendary annual Fremantle Arts Centre New Year’s Day event is one of those reliable and perfectly timed moments to help you start the year with the warmth of the sunshine, music and friends on the grass at the best venue in town.

To help you do that in 2023 it’s a heart-warming, diverse and totally sweet combination of our finest exports of premium reggae, soul, art-pop, funk, afro and world music supplied by the following corkers;

SUNSHINE BROTHERS | SOUKOUSS INTERNATIONALE | LUCY PEACH (full band) | HECTOR MORLET with tunes between supplied by the enigmatic & mysterious DJ BUTTER CHICKEN

As always – being January 1 it is 100% guaranteed to be the best show of the year so far and the perfect way to bypass the New Year’s Eve buffoons, bozos and queues or to simply relax away the effects of your very own buffoonery from the night before.
It’s an affordable ticket with an exquisite selection of music and great people gathered to unite around music played live and with love by the best in town.
