One Day in Fremantle 2018

28/01/2018 - 28/01/2018 One Day in Fremantle 2018

Acclaimed Australian singer-songwriter Kate Miller-Heidke has been announced as the headline act for next year’s One Day in Fremantle event. The multi-platinum, ARIA-nominated singer of hits like ‘The Last Day on Earth’ and ‘Caught in the Crowd’ will be joined by DJ Kevin Parker from psychedelic rockers Tame Impala, Arnhem Land hip-hop artist Baker Boy and indigenous dance group Djuki Mala. Award-winning singer-songwriter Gina Williams will return as host of the free community event, presented by the City of Fremantle. More acts for the main stage are still to be confirmed and will be announced in the coming weeks. A range of family-friendly activities will also be on offer to enjoy throughout the day, which will begin with a smoking ceremony. The inaugural event earlier this year – featuring John Butler, Dan Sultan and Mama Kin – drew a crowd of around 15,000 people. Fremantle mayor Brad Pettitt said the family-friendly event was a great celebration of modern Australia. “The first One Day in Fremantle was without doubt the best event I have ever been involved in,” Mayor Pettitt said. “The feeling in the crowd was just amazing, with people of all ages and backgrounds coming together to celebrate everything that is great about being Australian. “With the world-class artists we have lined up for next year, I’d encourage everyone to come down to the Esplanade and enjoy a great day in Freo.” The free One Day in Fremantle event will be held on Esplanade Reserve on Sunday 28 January 2018 from 2pm to 8pm.
