Growing up here on the coast in Perth, we have some amazing live music opportunities that combine Western Australian’s love for the ocean and our avid obsession with all things music! The Sugarloaf Rock Festival in Margaret River is one to add to your list if you haven’t already been, with next years lineup looking absolutely epic!
“For music fans, this is set to be the Margaret River Region’s hottest summer on record. The good folk behind Here Comes The Sun Festival are proud to announce Sugarloaf Rock – an all-day fiesta of great food, great wine, and the best musical talent in Australia. Named after the infamous rock formation, Sugarloaf Rock (and the sometimes treacherous seas that pound it) is one of the most photographed coastal landforms in the region. But the name will now be forever synonymous with some of the biggest names in rock throughout Australia and the world. Taking over its spiritual home of the beautiful 3 Oceans Winery on Saturday February 8, 2020, Sugarloaf Rock will provide a smorgasbord of the best local artisan stores and entertainment, plus an absolutely ridiculous line-up of Australian talent. This event is not to be missed!
What more could possibly be said about headliners Grinspoon?!? One of Australian rock’s undisputed titans, Grinners have been the country’s greatest live act for over 20 years, and like a fine wine they keep on getting better with age. Another absolutely legendary act, Wolfmother return to WA for an explosive appearance at Sugarloaf Rock. For 15 years the Sydney trio have been one of Australia’s most successful exports, with a staggeringly massive fanbase across the globe. A true original, there is no other band on the planet like Dead Letter Circus. Creative, beautiful and blissfully heavy, DLC have been at the forefront of Australian progressive music for a decade. With more including Abbe May, Stonefield, Southern River Band and Legs Electric.”
