Fremantle has become known as the beating heart of reggae in WA, as most Perth people were first exposed to the genre through Fremantle events such as The Bob Marley Outernational Day, the Fremantle Festivals annual Reggae Beach Party, and tours in the 90's by Lucky Dube, Jah Shaka, Earl 16, Benjamin Zephaniah and Mad Professor. More recently we have seen Fremantle host tours by Bushman, Richie Spice, Jah Mason and Jesse Proverbs, and local acts like The Sunshine Brothers play to packed houses whenever they hit the port city, further cementing Fremantle as the home of the one drop riddim!

By popular demand reggae returns to Freo with the rebirth of the infamous Higher Fyah Reggae Club at Bar Orient every Friday! Higher Fyah became known as Freo's finest reggae club, launching the careers of The Empressions (Australia's first ladies of dancehall), which in true dancehall style have gone on to promote and perform at major tours from Jamaican artists such as Anthony B, Cecile and Gyptian and of which it was recently said: "...Mumma Trees specifically for ... choice of tunes, every track dropped was a hit; and Sista Che uniquely for her wild, contagious energy enticing patrons to jam out and enjoy themselves as much as she seemed to be." - Kayla Xkembri - Colosoul Magazine.

Higher Fyah was also the launching point for many of this city's young reggae and dancehall DJs, including DJ Simba, who has gone on to play support to Bushman and Lukie D as well as now being a regular presenter on RTRFMs Jamdown Vershun.

And the entry fee to see this jam packed world class bill of entertainment? Keeping it in true Free-o style... that's right, it's free entry!

So come down and be part of Fremantle's One Love Family - every Friday, Bar Orient, 8pm -1am, free entry!
