Freo Live streams local artists performing in venues in and around Fremantle to promote and support artists, venues and WA music.
Kicking off this weekend, Fremantle will come alive as local venues band together to deliver ‘Freo Live’ – a live streaming event celebrating and supporting local talent and the live music capital of Australia, Fremantle.
Freo Live will see local artists performing live on the stages of some of the port city’s favourite venues, with each performance streamed via Facebook Live for music-lovers to enjoy from the comfort of home. A celebration of WA music, the line-up will feature local music legends and emerging artists – each performing to raise funds for the WA Music Fund by WAM to help the local music industry get back on its feet.
Freo Live Organiser Rob Nathan said he was looking for a way to support the local music industry and bring colour, life and music back into Fremantle venues ahead of their eventual re-opening when the idea for Freo Live came to mind.
Freo Live Organiser Rob Nathan was looking for a way to support the local music industry and bring colour, life and music back into Fremantle venues ahead of their eventual re-opening when the idea for Freo Live came to mind. ‘We love our port city and the music scene that is so ingrained in the Fremantle way of life – so doing something to support the artists and the venues felt like an obvious way to spend the extra hours in lockdown
‘The Freo Live program will see musicians being paid to play in venues and will help the venues maintain a connection with their patrons and bounce back when the restrictions are eventually lifted, as well as support WAM and the wider live music community’, said Nathan.
The line-up of venues includes Ronnie Nights, Clancy’s, Metropolis Fremantle and The National Hotel with more expected to join over the coming weeks. The first of the Freo Live series will begin this WA Day Long Weekend, with music aficionados encouraged to visit freolive.com.au to tune in, enjoy and support the local music industry.
