With the launch of the 2016 Perth International Arts Festival program comes the announcement of the Chevron Festival Gardens line-up – and what a line-up it is.
Our beautiful new home at Elizabeth Quay will provide the perfect place for you to enjoy an eclectic program of artists, representing a variety of genres and joining us from all over the world. The Chevron Festival Gardens is the only place in Perth you can find internationally-renowned heavyweights such as Thievery Corporation and Goran Bregović, long-standing giants of genre like Leftfield and Dub Pistols, and rising young superstars including Little Simz, Marlon Williams and Ibeyi, all rolled into one massive program.
This program is all about taking a chance in the name of discovery – your new favourite band, an exciting live music venue or a group of like-minded music lovers. You’ve never liked jazz? The Necks & Hauschka will change your mind. Not a fan of house music, or don’t know what it is? Then allow House Gospel Choir to enlighten you – you won’t regret it.
It’s often said that festivals offer ‘something for everyone’, but the 2016 Perth International Arts Festival’s Chevron Festival Gardens program truly delivers on that promise.
