Presented by the City of Nedlands, the concert series is now in its 22nd year with its popular free outdoor gigs and family-friendly atmosphere for the community.

Each week, some of WA’s most popular bands will perform in one of the City’s many scenic parks with a variety of children’s activities and food trucks on hand – or you can bring your own picnic.

Get amped at Swanbourne’s Allen Park on 17 February with the smooth beauties who make up Perth’s hottest powerhouse five-piece: the Velvet Amps, Perth’s only full-female cover band.

Fronted by international performers Dixie Johnstone (recently seen on Channel 7’s All Together Now), Carly Jochimsen and Nikki Dagostino – famed around the traps as Little Miss Squeezebox – the band is accompanied by killer backline musicians, ready to deliver a sassy and electrifying performance.

Hi-NRG come to Dot Bennett Park in Nedlands on 24 February, a sizzling six-piece committed to providing awesome tunes so people can bust a move and boogie on down while they have fun and enjoy themselves.

One of Perth’s most sought-after party bands, Hi-NRG is made up of a group of immensely talented musicians and vocalists – including the vibrant and effervescent Fie Cooper – who are able to re-create classic party tracks from the ’60s through to the present day, whether it’s pop, rock, Motown, funk, R&B, reggae or Latin rhythms.

Nedlands Mayor Max Hipkins said Summer Concerts in the Park would offer a truly diverse and eclectic line-up for 2019.

“It’s one of the most popular events on the City of Nedlands calendar and it’s this commitment to providing a wide variety of choice and embracing community spirit that has seen its continued success,” he said.

“Little wonder Summer Concerts in the Park has been a regular fixture for more than 20 years, offering wonderful free entertainment for everyone right across the spectrum.”
