A show-stopping headline performance, local musicians, a good-vibes sundowner and songs for the kids – the entertainment line-up at the Channel 7 Mandurah Crab Fest will delight crowds of all ages with something for everyone.
Mandurah’s award-winning event on March 14 and 15 will feature entertainment for young and old to enjoy, with a range of artists and performers set to take to the stage.
Home-grown Australian band Jebediah will be headlining Sunday afternoon’s entertainment line-up on the main Music Stage, with hits including Leaving Home, Animal, and She’s Like A Comet. Those after a dose of late 90s nostalgia will revel in this performance as Jebediah continues to captivate their devout fan base with their infectious energy and enthusiasm.
It was almost 23 years ago that Jebediah first shambled on stage in their shorts, sneakers, blue hair, dimples, grins and smirks and started bouncing off the walls with their roaring riffs and soaring pop hooks, tearing the lid off the Big Day Out and the Hottest 100 overnight.
Six albums and piles of awards and acclaim later, there is no hiding the joy the band get from playing together, and be it at packed pub or on a festival stage, it’s impossible to avoid their immersive charm.
The Music Stage will also feature a number of amazing local musicians throughout the festival, including Indigo, John Read Band, the Godlemans and many more, providing the perfect soundtrack to the weekend-long festivities.
On Saturday evening, a Crab Fest sundowner featuring the Australian Army Band, playing an eclectic mix of family favourites, will precede a spectacular fireworks display over the stunning Mandurah waterways at 8.30pm.
A dedicated children’s area will be home to a number of free and exciting children’s activities, entertainment and performances on the Children’s Stage, presented by Mandurah Forum, including a custom Crab Fest performance by Riptide.
Crab Fest is WA’s biggest free regional festival, showcasing two days of amazing food, entertainment and activities while celebrating local produce from around the Peel region.
Crab Fest was inducted into the Perth Airport WA Tourism Awards Hall of Fame late last year, claiming the prestigious title after winning Gold in the Major Festivals and Events category for three consecutive years (2016-2018).
The Channel 7 Mandurah Crab Fest is supported by the State Government through Tourism WA’s Regional Events Program, made possible by Royalties for Regions.
