The Rubens Announced for North West Festival 2016!

This August, Port Hedland is once again preparing to host the region’s original and premier music, arts and cultural event; The North West Festival. 

The town is set to become a vibrant hive of activity across the week with The North West Music Weekender, the Sunday Sundowner, North West Fringe, The Hedland Art Awards presented by FORM as well as a slew of community and local based activities and events.

With dates for this year’s Festival announced for the 19-21 August, we are excited to reveal a huge line up of Australian artists making their way to Port Hedland and set to play the much loved North West Music Weekender. With the Weekenders’ full line-up to be announced in the coming weeks, we couldn’t help but sneak in just one of the many bands making their debut at the event this August!

Welcome, The Rubens – Winners of the illustrious Triple J Hottest 100, a debut album with sales that rocketed to platinum, renown for selling out national dates on tour and overall legends in their craft. We can’t wait to have them grace the stage of this year’s Weekender. 

Keep your eyes peeled to as news of our full line-up is released 9am Wednesday 18th May, along with a very limited allocation of first release tickets!
