HIDDEN TREASURES A surprise return

Fremantle’s Hidden Treasures is returning in its 10th year to present some of WA’s best musical talents, transforming tucked away venues in the port city’s west end every Thursday night this September, kicking off Thursday, September 3.

This year’s diverse, intergenerational line up features Fremantle artists at its heart, with a mix of old favourites and exciting up-and-coming bands. With the easing of restrictions in Western Australia, City of Fremantle Mayor Brad Pettitt said it is an exciting opportunity to bring back this popular event and celebrate the return of live music.

“Over its 10-year history, Hidden Treasures has traditionally been held in winter, but we know it is an important time to support musicians and local businesses, so we’ve decided to surprise everyone and hold it in September for the first time.”

Among the line up of over 50 musicians to perform across five of Fremantle’s west end are several WAM Song of the Year nominees, including exciting up-and coming artist Siobhan Cotchin (pictured above), Fremantle favourites Dilip and the Davs, singer-songwriter Adrian Dzvuke and alternative rock band Phoneline Valentine.

Fremantle’s own Superego will also be making their Hidden Treasures debut and get the party started on opening night. As winners of the National Live Music Awards Live Act of the Year, the energetic and thought-provoking band has played at festivals across Australia.

Fremantle is known for nurturing musicians and some of this year’s line-up have been playing gigs in the port city since they were pre-teens. Vancool (Dion Mariani), Marley Wynn (Adrian Hoffman) and country band Albert Loss all played at Fremantle’s Garage Kids Ball alongside groups such as San Cisco and Tim & Jean to name a few.

Venues throwing opening their doors include The National, The Buffalo Club, The Navy Club, PS Art Space and the highly-popular Fremantle Tram. Fremantle’s favourite dance party Clubb Medd will host the closing party at PS Art Space.

Set times will be staggered so that live music-goers can enjoy a meal at one of Fremantle’s many popular food spots to kick off the night and then work their way down High Street. Get ready for good times, warm fires and an epic return to live music at Hidden Treasures.

Hidden Treasures returns to five venues in Fremantle’s West End for every Thursday in September. Head to to view the full 202o line up and purchase tickets.
