Backlot – home of Fairbridge Festival youth program plus more…
As always, we’re super excited to present a diverse and talented range of acts. The youth program includes a local line-up that will blow your socks off, with acts like POW Negro, Lucy Peach, Salary, Soukouss Internationale, Heathcote Blue, The Little Lord Street Band, Stella Donnelly, Demon Days, Beni Bjah, Hannah Mae & The Hoodwinks, Barefeet Sojourns and Brassika.
Coming from across the country (or seas), we have a dazzling array of peeps playing for you: Emily Wurramara is an amazing songwriter who sings both in English and her own language; Sex On Toast is a nine-man explosion of talent and bad life decisions; Les Poules A Colin from Canada play traditional Quebecois folk with a modern twist; plus The Raglins, The John Flanagan Trio and Lucy Wise.
The Youth Arts Space will be spilling over with fun and nourishing activities to add some sparkle, chill and crafting to your weekend. We also have a new venue, the Backlot Solar Stage, which will feature up-and-coming young acts, workshops, blackboard opportunities and some late night boogie times. Thanks to South Fremantle High School for partnering with us to deliver this new stage. The Seedbox chill space will be back to bring some loungeroom vibes when you need a breather from the festival hubbub.
Can’t wait to catch you there!
