One Day in Fremantle 2018

Acclaimed Australian singer-songwriter Kate Miller-Heidke has been announced as the headline act for next year’s One Day in Fremantle event. The multi-platinum, ARIA-nominated singer of hits like ‘The Last Day on Earth’ and ‘Caught in the Crowd’ will be joined by DJ Kevin Parker from psychedelic rockers Tame Impala, Arnhem Land hip-hop artist Baker Boy  and indigenous dance group Djuki Mala. Award-winning singer-songwriter Gina Williams will return as host of the free community event, presented by the City of Fremantle. More acts for the main stage are still to be confirmed and will be announced in the coming weeks. A range of family-friendly activities will also be on offer to enjoy throughout the day, which will begin with a smoking ceremony. The inaugural event earlier this year - featuring John Butler, Dan Sultan and Mama Kin - drew a crowd of around 15,000 people. Fremantle mayor Brad Pettitt said the family-friendly event was a great celebration of modern Australia. “The first One Day in Fremantle was without doubt the best event I have ever been involved in,” Mayor Pettitt said. “The feeling in the crowd was just amazing, with people of all ages and backgrounds coming together to celebrate everything that is great about being Australian. “With the world-class artists we have lined up for next year, I’d encourage everyone to come down to the Esplanade and enjoy a great day in Freo.” The free One Day in Fremantle event will be held on Esplanade Reserve on Sunday 28 January 2018 from 2pm to 8pm. Line-up includes: Kate Miller-Heidke with String Quartet Baker Boy DJ Kevin Parker (Tame Impala) Djuki Mala Gina Williams & Guy Ghouse Welcome to Country by Marie Taylor & Dr. Richard Walley OAM

#MyFreoStory is your Freo story

We all have a Freo story. From the locals raised in the port city, to the live music lovers or Sunday brunch devotees on the strip, locals and visitors alike have a story to share about Freo. And so #MyFreoStory video competition was born. In early 2016, the #MyFreoStory competition was launched to encourage people to tell their own Freo story, with 40 very unique and heartfelt videos submitted. This included a day in the life of local Freo dog, following a unicyclist’s journey around town to the home of WA Circus, watching a time-lapse artist weave a large red basket around themselves in prominent Fremantle landmarks and Freo-inspired sea shanty “Fremantle, The Pride of WA”.  After much deliberation, 9 entries were shortlisted to determine the overall winner, Shakey’s Story. The first #MyFreoStory winning entry by Oliver Oldroyd and Stevie James Smith depicted the moving true story of a local artist and his strong connection to the Freo art scene and local music legend Bon Scott. We asked the producer Oliver Oldroyd what motivated him and his cousin to enter “We love living here in Freo. There's such a good creative vibe and it's great to be part of it. We love making films and it was also important for us to get Shakey’s name out there and get him recognised for the talented artist he is.” Another entry by a 16 year old student from Perth Modern School, Radheya Jegatheva was “My Journey Through Freo”, voted on the youtube.com/fremantlestory as the best film in our people’s choice category. This young film maker gave us a view of all the things he loves in Freo by filming on his mum’s iPhone. We asked Radheya what motivated him to enter “A bit of everything to be honest, but one of the main messages that I wanted to convey through my video was that Freo is a city that can cater for all sorts of people of all ages - and that there was so much to do and so much to see.” After viewing all of last year’s great films we couldn’t get enough, so in late March we launched the second 2017 #MyFreoStory video competition and are waiting in anticipation for the new stories. If you want to check out last year’s films or submit your own #MyFreoStory video visit fremantlestory.com.au/myfreostory. Competition closes 22 May 2017.
