SCOTTOFEST: Fundraiser to keep live music in Mt Lawley

13 Jul

After a series of venue closures in recent times, music destinations around Perth are working hard to bring us the best music in a top quality setting, including a number of new ones. Old faithful The Flying Scotsman though is now facing new council noise regulations, and is calling in help from some of Perth’s best musical talent. SCOTTOFEST 2015 will be one massive party thrown to raise funds for the purchase of proper sound proofing solutions, so the venue can “keep live music in Mt Lawley”.

At the start of 2015 The Velvet Lounge relaunched with a brand new p.a, lighting system, a booking agent and a dedicated team of in house audio engineers. Since then the venue has been hosting almost every style of music and type of event you can imagine. In order to continue it’s showcase of the best live music and Perth’s top DJs, they need to comply with council noise regulations.

The event will span across the venue’s three stages; The Flying Scotsman, The Velvet Lounge and upstairs in Defectors Bar. SCOTTOFEST will feature top local acts including The Disappointed, Celery, ScalphunterThe Caballeros, Freqshow, Day of the Dead, Junkadelic, the Surf Rabbits, the Limbs, the Yokohomos, High Horse, Peyton, Wisdom 2th, Cash Krzma, Emu Xperts and Flyball Gov’nor.
