Now in its fifth year the New Years Day event is becoming an institution not to be missed – an awesomely appropriate venue to bliss out to some of the worlds finest music on New Years Day.
The event takes it up a notch this year with an incredible line up headlined by the none other than the incredible Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings.

Direct from Brooklyn, New York, Sharon Jones and the Dap-kings are the most electrifying soul group in the world today. This is the real deal - the gilded and gritty sounds of gospel, soul, and funk with the dynamo soul sister Ms Sharon Jones out the front and no better way to get down.

We also present, for the first time in Australia – the legendary Spanish band Los Coronas – fusing the sounds of retro surf rock music and traditional Spanish music into one high energy, hot blooded instrumental showdown. Incredible live show and one of Spain’s most revered live bands.

They said 2012 was the end of the world – well lets enjoy the new beginnings of 2013 with a feel-good day built to lay back under the trees or kick it on the dance-floor with some of the greatest music in the world and the best people around.

To make this possible once again we throw our arms around the good people of WA with these amazing artists.
