City of Swan Mayor David Lucas said each act offered something new to the audience, with artists playing blues-inspired music to indie, dance and hip-hop.

“Live music shows are a chance for us to unplug and enjoy the experience with our family and friends,” he said.

“It’s also a great opportunity to celebrate local talent and discover new music, so head down to Locale and grab some dinner after the show in Midland CBD.”

Mayor Lucas said the Locale Event Space was the ideal spot for live music, recently undergoing a makeover which included a pop up food and drink space and artwork upcycled from the old Midland Railway Workshops.

“The City sees the iconic Cale Street becoming the new main street for Midland, with a large public piazza planned for the area as part of the Midland Oval Redevelopment,” he said.

“This event series is just one of the many exciting things we have planned for Midland, and we can’t wait to show off what this vibrant and diverse area has to offer.”
