Sound On: Here are the stellar musical acts playing at Murdoch Uni's festival for high-schoolers
Perth's inaugural Sound On Festival offers high school students (aged 14-18) with an evening of alcohol-free live music fun. Presented by Murdoch University, Sound On Festival combines music with immersive and innovative experiences to guide school leavers towards unlocking life's potential after high school, and encourages free thinking, something that Murdoch has been synonymous with since the 1970’s.
Perth Arena will ignite from 3-9.30pm on September 28, to welcome a fierce selection of local talent:
Headliner: Alison Wonderland
Aussie EDM royalty Alison Wonderland will be the main anchor to the live music portion of Sound On, coming off her wildly successful sophomore album, Awake, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic Albums in Aprill.
Sydney-based wonder twins Cosmo and Pat Liney are currently on a national tour in celebration of their debut album, What Comes Next. Cosmo’s Midnight will be bringing their particular brand of infections electro-pop to Sound On audiences with an all-new live show.
Any avid Triple J listener would be familiar with Arno Faraji, the 18-year-old Perth-based producer/hip hop artist who was the 2017 triple J Unearthed High Winner.
Still need more convincing? Rounding up the wonderfully eclectic line-up is Australia’s rap and songwriting fireball queen of energy Tkay Maidza, one-man orchestra and Channel 9's The Voice winner Sam Perry, as well as Murdoch alumni and self-taught powerhouse, DJ FlexMami. There’s something for everyone.
But that’s not all - Perth-born founder of The Indigo Project, Mary Hoang, will be guiding an opening keynote, workshops & panels with artists & Murdoch alumni, the festival will be sprinkled with feel-good activations including a video games lounge, an experiential photo booth, communal art & much more.
September 28 is just around the corner, so don’t miss out and get your tickets ASAP.
