The set times for the 2018 SOTA Festival are here! Plan your day with your mates and get organised for what will be an incredible day of live West Australian music.

Artists will perform across two joined epic stages, with no artist crossover of times (a festival goers dream). 

Without further adieu, the following artist lineup for SOTA’s Centre Stage is as follows:   

In addition to these epic sounds we have plenty of food and drink to keep you hydrated and your energy levels high enough for dancing all day long. For the first time SOTA Festival will bring Bar Pop’s Bars, Bites and Beats to Elizabeth Quay: featuring Insta-worthy bites that showcase incredible local produce, WA fortified and brewed beers, wine and more, Bars, Bites and Beats is every foodie’s dream. A swathe of food trucks will take over the space, along with urban cool bars, so you can listen to the epic sounds whilst snacking on delicious bites from Westerns Australia’s best food truck line-up.

Bar Pop, the team behind Ice Cream Factory, Perth Craft Beer Fest and The Urban Orchard brings you SNACK – a Sunday party like no other. A playful explosion of local DJs, beach balls and colour, SNACK brings those Summer festival feels to the cooler months! Debuting as part of the Celebrate WA long weekend, SNACK will include a YoGo DJ tower, silent disco and a dizzying array of theatrical stage effects.

SOTA Festival is a collaboration derived from the desire to support, nurture and grow creative opportunities for local artists, and to further position contemporary music as a leading cultural identifier for WA. The popularity and awareness of SOTA continues to grow from year to year and the event is now a key feature on the WA music calendar.
