Published on Wednesday, 20 December 2023 at 11:25:01 AM

One of the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder’s most popular annual events, the Sunset Concert Series, is back for 2024 with another spectacular lineup.Starting on Australia Day, the City will once again host three unforgettable evenings of free live music and entertainment at Centennial Park.

The headliner acts hail from across Australia, with Thirsty Merc, Holy Holy, and Abbacadabra taking the stage, and supported by music artists local to the Goldfields-Esperance region.

Mayor Glenn Wilson said the City’s Sunset Concert Series, has become a much-loved annual event by residents, running for over a decade.

“It's wonderful to see people coming out in droves with their families to enjoy the fantastic free entertainment on offer.”
“Next year’s headlines are spectacular for next year. The last time Thirsty Merc visited Kalgoorlie-Boulder was in 2010, and will no doubt wow their fans here with some of their chart-topping hits in a live setting.”
“The concerts attract residents and visitors of all ages, and it’s encouraging to see an increase in our younger population participating in these community events.”
“I encourage everyone to save the dates, pack a picnic or support our local food vendors, and come down to enjoy a great summer night out.”

Transporting audiences back to the glittering era of disco, tribute band Abbacadabra will headline the first concert of the series on Australia Day. Renowned for delivering an authentic ABBA experience, the group have performed a plethora of sold-out shows to audiences worldwide, from Europe to the U.S.

Indie-rock sensation Holy Holy have been a force to be reckoned with since they hit the Australian music scene in 2010. From the alt-rock vibes of When the Storms Would Come to the introspective melodies of My Own Pool of Light their musical evolution has left them with a devoted and diverse fan base and a slew of critically acclaimed albums.

Straight off the back of a relentless touring schedule and festival appearances, Holy Holy will be performing at the second Sunset Concert on 3 February. Australian rock legends, Thirsty Merc will take the stage for the final concert on 17 February. Known for their smash-hit In The Summertime, Thirsty Merc burst onto the scene in 2002 with their infectious blend of electric rock, classical, and jazz influences. With more than 200,000 albums sold worldwide and a string of sell-out shows under their belt, this dynamic quartet has become a household name in Australia. ‘

The Sunset Concert Series evenings start at 6pm, and guests are encouraged to bring their own chairs, BYO picnic and beverages (no glass), or support the range of local food vendors at each event.
