sunset@subi 2017/18

The city’s free sunset@subi summer concerts season will launch Sunday 10 December 2017 running to Sunday 11 February 2018.

This year's series will include a special jazzy Christmas on Sunday 17 December before taking a short break for the Christmas New Year period. The series will return with one more concert at Theatre Gardens on Sunday 7 January before moving to Nicholson road Reserve for two Sundays.

Market Square will host two concerts on Sunday 28 Januray and Sunday 4 February. Our final concert will be on Sunday 11 February with the vibrant backdrop of the newly painted street mural by Okuda San Miguel in Forrest Square car park. 

Each year, the family-friendly sunset@subi concerts feature musical genres to suit all tastes and this year will be no different. Concert-goers are encouraged to bring a picnic dinner and a mat or low chairs to enjoy the beautiful Perth evenings. If you forget to bring dinner or are looking for something sweet, you can pick up dessert or coffee from one of the food vans.

The 2017/18 sunset@subi program will be released soon, for the most up-to-date information for each concert, follow the concerts via Facebook or download the sunset@subi concert brochure (1.89MB).
We look forward to seeing you at the 2017/18 season of sunset@subi concerts.
