Illuminate Music Festival to draw a crowd this weekend

Esperance’s ‘Illuminate Music Festival’ will take place this Saturday as part of Edge of the Bay celebrations.

The festival, running from 3pm to late this Saturday, December 2, will feature both local and visiting artists.

A number of local acts are set to perform, including John Ratcliff, Rachel Vibart, Grand Casual and Firehorse. 

The Festival will see singer Ruby May return to Esperance, having played at Festival of the Wind and other past local events.

Fremantle singer songwriter Elli Schoen and 20-year-old Dunsborough singer Brayden Sibbald will both take to the stage this weekend to perform at the event.

Shire of Esperance president Victoria Brown said the Illuminate Music Festival would be an ‘electrifying addition’ to Edge of the Bay festivities.

“I am eager to see some of our local talent in the line-up performing with some of WA’s best,” she said.

The Shire of Esperance have advised residents that refillable water stations will be in place and the festival will be an alcohol free event.
