The Live Lighter Basant Festival marks the coming of spring – a time historically favoured for new beginnings. The Festival aims to showcase the diversity of Multicultural West Australian music, food, arts and culture, bringing people together in celebration of life itself.

The festival will take place at Langley Park, Perth.

On the day over 40 performing groups will take to the stage offering an eclectic mix of music and entertainment, everything from folk, rock and pop, to Indigenous Australian music, African drum circles, as well as Indian, Malaysian and Middle Eastern dance groups.

The Festival includes over 100 food and market stalls, offering arts and crafts, workshops and presentations, fashion, food and produce. In addition, there will be plenty of family-friendly activities such as kite flying and kite-making classes, children’s entertainment including Mechanical Rides (Simulator, Cup and Saucer, Mixed Toy Ride) and Bouncy Castles, live Punjabi dhol beats, henna and face painting.

This free festival aims to embrace Perth’s rich and varied cultural melting pot, to bring communities together to network and is a step forward in overcoming any barriers to engagement. People from all walks of life and backgrounds are welcome.
