Emma Louise headlines Fiesta Concert 2017

Media Release 31 January 2017

In 2017, the City’s Fiesta Concert will feature prominent Australian singer-songwriter Emma Louise.

This free family-friendly event takes place on Saturday 25 February on the South Perth Foreshore and is not to be missed.

A rare kind of talent, writing songs is as natural as breathing to Emma Louise. Her new album titled ‘Supercry’ features intensively evocative tunes such as Illuminate, West End Kids and Talk Baby Talk. Emma’s breakthrough song Jungle from her stunning 2011 debut went on to become a Top 5 hit in the UK, France and Italy. Emma will be supported by spiritual and soulful voice of Brisbane singer-songwriter Thelma Plum.

The celebrations will begin at 5pm with pre-show entertainment, a family activity area and a gourmet food village. 

The evening will conclude with the spectacular Pagoda Resort & Spa fireworks display launched from the Swan River. 

“The City’s Fiesta Concert is an annual community celebration that has established itself as one of our most popular events,” Mayor Sue Doherty said.

“Everyone is invited to join us at Sir James Mitchell Park for what will be a very special evening of Australian music under the stars.

“It is an absolute pleasure for the City to host these inclusive events for the community to showcase our beautiful City, while bringing families and friends together in a positive and fun way. Offering a diverse range of high-quality arts, events and cultural experiences throughout the year and particularly over the summer period for the whole community to enjoy is a key focus for the City.”
