STATE OF THE ART Karnivool and Drapht lead line up


Lock in your WA Day celebrations for Monday, June 5.

SOTA (the State of the Art festival) returns with a fully an all WA line up designed for music lovers of all ages, with both under 18 and licensed areas. Best of all, it’s free!

Proudly presented as part of the 2017 WA Day Festival, and co-presented by WAM, the sixth annual SOTA showcase will be held at Elizabeth Quay as part of the WA Day long weekend festivities.

Heading the line up are local heavies Karnivool, with irrepressible WA rapper Drapht joining them at the top of the bill alongside the recently regenerated Gyroscope, popular Jebediah acoustic offshoot Bob Evans, plus Tired Lion, Katy Steele, Crooked Colours, Abbe May, POW! Negro, Rag N’ Bone, Ziggy, The Money War, Elli Schoen and The China Blue Experiment.

SOTA’s line-up includes a mix of WA favourites, old and new. Many of these artists will be returning from international or national tours to join us on home soil.

In addition to these epic sounds there will be plenty of food and drink to keep you hydrated and  energy levels high enough for dancing all day long. Be it tacos, curry, dumplings, bao or crepes that get your mouth watering, the melting pot of flavours found within Western Australia will be at your fingertips via an impressive line-up of international food trucks at Eat Street.

Those wanting a more sophisticated bite can visit the licensed Urban Providore where Perth’s most popular restaurants will be serving up their flagship dishes, and local produce will also be showcased and available to purchase.

Attendees will also be able to branch out from the SOTA Festival on the Sunday and Monday to enjoy a range of activities, including the Perth Makers Market, WA Celebrity Signature Dish, Jazz Concert and Play in WA area that includes a range of activities for the whole family.

SOTA: A Festival Celebrating WA Music plays Elizabeth Quay on Monday 5 June, 12-9pm. Free entry. More info at
