New post: New Years Day and the Perth Cup 2008

Old 2007 post:

As I understand it, the Perth Cup is a horse race, but at the same time it’s a big social event like the Melbourne Cup. There are several marquees (tentLand) on the Ascot Race Course terrain, and in these you can socialise, eat, drink, watch a fashion parade, and maybe watch the Perth Cup as well (this doesn’t seem the main purpose of TentLand!).

For the first time this year, a rock concert is also part of the happenings, Side Track’d, which I wrote about here. It is a seperate event which needs a seperate ticket, but there is a ticket that will allow you to get into the concert AND a marquee, The Lounge Room.

The marquees in Tent Land are as follows, follow the links for more info:

Ace Vending’s Hollywood Marquee

Las Vegas Tent

Liquid Marquee

Smirnoff Experience Marquee

SPACE 2007 Marquee (pdf file)

The Loungeroom (this is the one to go to if you also want access to the great bands on the Side Track’d line-up)


Tickets to most tents are around $250….!! But that does usually include drinks for a few hours, food and some form of entertainment.

Apparently in previous years there was TentLand and Riverland, and there were about 18.000 people combined! This year there is only TentLand, and only about 14.000 tickets to be sold.

Perth Racing has the following to say:

One acre of lush paddock transformed into a party-zone. 14,000 of Perth’s social scene. A cocktail of glamour, sex, style and beat. Check your resolutions at the entrance – you won’t need them here. The party of the year.

General admission into Ascot for the Perth Cup (so not TentLand) is $30.

The Sunset Markets are on every Friday night this summer from 1 December to 23 March 2007 (excluding 22 December, 29 December and 5 January… so night quite every Friday!) in the cbd of Joondalup.
They feature market stalls, music, food, street performers and exhibitons.

Listen to live bands most weeks as you stroll through the markets, watch buskers, have a coffee, grab a bite to eat and soak up the festive atmosphere.

See the City of Joondalup website for a bit more information.

The markets are part of Joondalup’s free Summer in the City events, which also include the Scorcha Youth Music Festival, some concerts in February and March, and the Joondalup Festival at the end of March.

If you’re going to see Robbie Williams on Thursday 30 November or Friday 1 December, download the pdf here from Chugg Entertainment with the latest info about times, parking, seating etc. Also see Ticketmaster, because it seems there are still tickets available.

Kylie is also due to perform in Perth, on 4, 5 and 7 December. See the latest info at BOCS. There are still some tickets available!

Another big star to come to Perth soon is Elton John. Tickets are still avaiable through Ticketek, and venue info is here.

For other concerts coming up in Perth, see the category ‘tickets on sale‘. It’s is updated nearly daily with new info as it comes to hand.

Noel Gallagher wll be performing at the Perth Concert Hall on Saturday 16 December 2006, joined on stage by Oasis band member Gem.

Wow, that’s in about two weeks!

Following on from the recently released Oasis ‘best of’ compilation album ‘Stop The Clocks’, at short notice Noel has agreed to play a small number of very special semi-acoustic shows. Performing Oasis hits and classics, fellow Oasis band member Gem will be joining Noel on stage.

Tickets on sale through BOCS on Thursday 30 November.

Augie March are performing with the West Australian Symphony Orchestra at Kings Park on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 February 2007, for the Ernst & Young Pops in the Park.

Augie March rose to the forefront of Australian music in 2006 with a No. 1 One Crowded Hour and 6 ARIA award nominations. Join them under the stars in Kings Park as they perform hits from all their albums with the West Australian Symphony Orchestra.

Gates open at 5pm for this byo drinks and picnic event, with the support act The Bank Holidays starting at 6.15pm.
Tickets from $60 through BOCS.

Looking for a free event for your New Years Eve celebrations? This may be it!

The City of Perth have organised a big party with music, performances and celebrations at the new Northbridge Piazza from 9.30pm to midnight.

The City of Perth will fire into the New Year with a fusion of jazz, latin and club styles, as Perth’s very own jazz diva Marnie Kent launches her new dance project, the Kent and Clark Supergroove, bridging the gap between infectious club floor rhythms and Western Australia’s finest musicians. The glam, glitz and stardom from the ‘60s to the ‘00s converge for the first time at the new Northbridge Piazza with an all-star tribute show featuring KYLIE MINOGUE, ABBA, FREDDY MERCURY (Queen), T-REX and BOY GEORGE. A series of 20 minute sets, each with a themed light show and Vogue Entertainment dancers in high end costumes, From Feathers To Leathers.

More info at the City of Perth website.
