Expresstival has become a free, headline event for Anti-Poverty Week in WA taking place on Saturday 17 October in Forrest Place in the CBD Perth from 2pm to 7pm. Musical acts featured will include Phil Walley–Stack’s ‘Strong’, Raksha, Fnts Movement, Manaaki, Mc Trooth, The Meeck, The Devil In Miss Jones and Boonderu Music Academy.

Now in its fourth year, Expresstival is a unique event which brings together music and the arts to provide a platform for young people of WA to engage with community support groups and mentors. The festival’s purpose is to build awareness, encourage connectedness and stimulate conversations between those of different cultural, ethnic and social backgrounds. This is particularly important given 33% of the Western Australian population is born overseas. By engaging people through music and art, Expresstival gives the community an opportunity to engage with the issues associated with poverty in a non-confronting way.
