Fremantle’s Hidden Treasures Winter Music Series returns this July with a mix of ripe new bands, well-seasoned cult heroes, perfectly-cured venues and… a musical tram. For the past six years the City of Fremantle has presented Hidden Treasures, which has given WA music fans a rare peak inside the tucked away, incredibly evocative old venues that dot Fremantle’s West End such as the Buffalo and Navy Clubs. Now a staple of the local music calendar, ‘Treasures has developed a reputation as a taste-making showcase of WA’s hottest young acts while also celebrating specially-reformed cult bands from the state’s rich musical past. It’s the unusual audience this creates – crusty rock dogs rubbing shoulders with 19 year-old hipsters – that makes Hidden Treasures such an unpredictable delight. In 2017 Hidden Treasures will also welcome its first ever roving, ever-changing, venue – the Fremantle Tram. The local tourist shuttle will regularly pick up punters before stopping at picturesque locations such as the North Mole Lighthouse for stripped-back acoustic concerts by artists including Lucy Peach, Timothy Nelson and Steve Parkin. Tickets to Hidden Treasures are $20 on the night only. Tickets gain you entry to all venues: The Navy Club, Buffalo Club, Packenham St Art Space, The Orient and National Hotel.
