Illuminate Night Party feat The Cat Empire, supported by Katy Steele

February 23, 2019 @ 2:30 am - 7:30 am

Illuminate Night Party presented by LiveLighter

If it has been a while since you danced up a storm, sang out loud, smiled until your face hurt and had a night out with your friends or loved ones, your time has come.

For over a decade, The Cat Empire have been known far and wide as a fantastic party band. Their colourful, genre-bending music is difficult to describe and impossible to categorise, yet seems at home almost anywhere in the world. The Cat Empire’s reputation is built upon a chaotic and fiercely uplifting live show that saw their last album debut Top 20 in 16 countries around the world.

With their latest album Stolen Diamonds (release Feb 2019) delivering new music and energy to the set, The Cat Empire will bring their brand of feel good, smile-inducing, euphoric roots pop to Illuminate Night Party presented by LiveLighter on Saturday 23 February.

Supporting The Cat Empire at Illuminate 2019 will be ARIA Award nominated singer/songwriter/guitarist Katy Steele. A member of rock band Little Birdy for almost a decade, Katy embarked on her solo career in 2016. The WA songstress, with one of Australia’s most distinctive voices, will entertain the crowd with a mix of tracks from her first solo record, 2016’s Human, as well as dusting off a few Little Birdy classics.

In addition to the headline acts, talented local artists will feature on the main stage, and there will be roving performers, a glitter bar, photo booths, light shows, carnival rides, food trucks and much more to light up your night.

The Illuminate Night party is a smoke and alcohol free event presented by Healthway, promoting the LiveLighter message, and sponsored by Primewest and Lotterywest.

* Tickets are limited to 6 tickets per booking.  Tickets beyond this number will be cancelled.

Fast Track Ticket Entry

Entry to the Illuminate Night Party is free, but everyone who attends will need a ticket. A maximum of six (6) tickets can be allocated per person.
