COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS UPDATE: Our annual News Years Day event is going ahead!

Please note the following so we can all have a safe and happy time together on the first day of 2022:

  • Tickets are still available. We have limited our capacity to ensure social distancing in our beautiful gardens is possible.
  • The event is outdoors so masks are not mandatory but they are recommended
  • We all have to stay seated so BYO low chair or blanket to stretch out in the shade picnic style
  • Food and drink will be available to purchase but once you collect it you must return to your spot
  • No dancing or standing – we will all just have to dance (seated!) on the inside

See you there!


Here we are again – closing out another year together – with our people, our tribe, our friends, our families, our communities and our neighbourhoods.

Although we know we can rely on each other in these weird times – in 2022 – good times sans frontieres are comin’!

So what better way to start a year of hope and renewed freedom than the sweetest little annual New Years Day gathering on earth, right here in Fremantle.

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 under the big ol’ trees at the best venue in town. To help you do that in 2022 it’s a heart-warming, diverse and totally sweet combination of premium reggae, gospel, blues, afro and world music supplied by the following bonkers line up:

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.
