Mayor John Bowler said the Sunset Concert Series is one of the most highly anticipated events on the City’s events calendar and the headline acts chosen will not disappoint.

“We’re so pleased to have secured such high-calibre renowned artists for next year’s series, and it’s exciting to offer our residents the opportunity to see them live right here at home.”

“Residents of all ages will enjoy this year’s showcase and I encourage everyone to add the dates to their diaries and join us in getting 2023 off to a great start,” Mayor Bowler said.

Professional Australian rapper and hip-hop royalty, ILLY, first emerged onto the hip-hop scene in 2009 and has released five studio albums, winning multiple APRA Awards and ARIA Music Awards including Best Australian Live Act. ILLY has performed at many Australian music festivals including headline spots at Groovin the Moo and Splendour in the Grass.

He currently has over 470,000 monthly listeners on Spotify and is followed by over 285,000 people on Facebook. ILLY is hailed as one of the country’s best live performers of the last decade and has earnt his position as an integral part of the musical fabric of Australia.

Renowned Australian five-piece alternative rock band The Rubens rose to fame following the release of their self-titled album in 2012, which reached number three on the ARIA charts.

Since then, the band has had several chart-hitting singles with many featuring in Triple J’s Hottest 100.

The band has mastered the art of genre-surfing, coasting between alt-rock, pop, hip-hop amongst other influences and achieved commercial success while upholding their authenticity. In 2018, they released their third studio album Lo La Ru, which became their third to debut within the ARIA top five and in the same year supported Pink in her 46-show tour of Australia.

Residents will be treated to an explosion of groove-infused rhythms with Coterie taking the stage as part of the final concert. The five-piece band spearheaded by four Maori brothers living on the coastlines of Western Australia are rapidly building a reputation as one of the most electrifying live acts on both sides of the Tasman.

Their first hit single Cool it down spent three weeks in the number one position on the official New Zealand Hot Singles Charts with the group since amassing more than five million streams, 250,000 YouTube views, and an army of dedicated fans behind them.

The Robbie vs Ed Tribute Show will have the crowd singing along to all of their favourite hits from Robbie Williams and Ed Sheeran. Performer Joe Boshell is known for his enthusiasm, high energy, and uncanny resemblance to the two musicians.

Each concert starts at 6:00pm, with residents encouraged to bring their own chairs or picnic blankets, and food and beverages (no glass). Local food van providers will also be there serving a range of food and drinks.

The 2023 Sunset Concert Series is proudly supported by grant funding from Lotterywest and Northern Star Resources.
