CoLAB Festival is a new one-of-a-kind, collaborative, creative arts and music event for Perth. The festival is built on the collective ideals of local WA crews that include Perth based creatives, food innovators, music industry representatives and university clubs and leaders and featuring some of the nation’s best live music acts right now. CoLAB is the result of good people doing good things, bringing to life exactly what they’d like to see from a festival in WA. CoLAB will take place in the beautiful, historic surrounds of the University of Western Australia, on Saturday 29 November 2014.

Presenting this new collaboration is the nation’s leading youth radio station, triple j, as well as Australia’s premier music and arts guide, The Music. Also in on the action is one of our state’s most reputable colleges, the University of WA, whose input involves not only use of their stunning riverside location as the site for CoLAB Festival, but the active involvement of different UWA groups, clubs and university leaders. The clubs will help bring CoLAB
to life, assisting with theming and event ideas as well as EMAS (Electronic Music Appreciation Society) presenting and programming The Tav Stage.

Punters will have the opportunity to broaden their artistic horizons via a host of artistic delights that will see local creatives teaming up to produce spectacular visual and performance works for CoLAB festival day – think art installations, live art, interactive comedy and theatre. Perth’s best independent food trucks and hawkers will be bringing their A-game to create a mini food festival, while custom-created bars will be there to wet your whistle. A chemistry lab-themed bar with scientists mixing kooky concoctions is just one of the unique bar experiences in store.

A boutique festival, CoLAB will be open to all, but kept at a tidy size – so the usual large, hyperactive, ill-mannered crowds of other music festivals won’t be anywhere in sight – CoLAB will turn your negative festival feels right ‘round. CoLAB provides a chance to re-live the fun, carefree golden vibes of your university days; or if you’re still studying, what better way to celebrate the end of exams than to share an amazing day with your peers, that they’ve designed themselves. CoLab is an ‘appreciation day’ – of the best music, food, arts and new ideas – a chance for Perth community to unite and enjoy ourselves under blue skies.
