World renowned music

02 June 2021

Fremantle is the home of live music in Western Australia. A coastal town on the western edge of the continent has grown an internationally renowned music scene that has piqued worldwide interest. It’s a port city with a musical soul.

Basement bars, an old drill hall, pubs, churches and convict-built spaces offer the perfect environment to experience the creative storm that is Western Australia’s live music scene. It’s holy ground for counter cultural types and live music aficionados.

Resident Aria and Grammy Award winners, world leading blues guitarists, headline acts and touring shows, single launches, jam nights, open mic nights and plenty of rising stars can be found in Fremantle’s live music and performance venues. Check out live music venues and WHAT'S ON

Winter music festivals entice punters to rug up and head out for a night of venue hopping to catch the latest sounds at hidden venues through the West End and across the river in North Fremantle.

You’ll hear the sounds of Freo’s music all over the city; impromptu at local lunchtime cafes, relaxed at night time bars and firing up at basement venues.

It’s the magic of Fremantle, a mutual love of creating music, browsing the vinyl at one of Fremantle’s well stocked vintage record stores, dropping in on a local gig at Mojo’s, Freo.Social or Clancy’s Fish Pub and witnessing unexpected street appearances from home grown international acts outside Fremantle Markets or on street corners.
