With just over a month until this year’s Channel 7 Mandurah Crab Fest presented by LiveLighter, the headline entertainers have been locked in.

The City of Mandurah is excited to announce Justice Crew and Thirsty Merc will join the stellar festival line-up over Crab Fest, March 18 and 19.

Australia’s leading urban/pop group Justice Crew will entertain Saturday evening festival-goers on the Music Stage. The versatile and talented group have a string of hit songs including QueSera, Boom Boom, Best Night, and Everybody.

After three critically acclaimed studio albums, an acoustic fan favourites record and a swag of classic tracks such as 20 Good Reasons, Emancipate Myself, Someday Someday, Mousetrap Heart and In The Summertime, Australian rock stalwarts, Thirsty Merc, will take to the stage on Sunday afternoon.

Crab Fest has a long history of offering a unique experience for all ages and tastes, and this year’s event will be no different. There’s more than 40 hours of free, live entertainment across the entire weekend including the popular Australian Army Band, Mandurah’s own Jonny Taylor, Moorditj Brothers, African Music Circles, and a huge list of other local performers.

Thousands of local, national and international visitors are expected to make their way to the heart of Mandurah for the City’s signature annual two-day festival, which has drawn crowds in excess of 100,000 people since 2011.

The finishing touches are being made on other exciting attractions, including a huge range of food experiences including four ticketed food events, entertainment, art, market stalls, cooking demonstrations, a children’s dress up competition, an En Plein Air competition, licensed bar areas, water activities and activations and a magnificent fireworks display.
