The West Coast Blues 'N' Roots Festival Returns

FREMANTLE PARK, Australia (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — The West Coast Blues 'n' Roots Festival returns in 2010 with a new home, increased comforts and Crowded House headlining the talent on Sunday, March 28, 2010.


In 2010 the Blues 'n' Roots moves to its new home, Fremantle Park. Significantly more spacious, the new site will better accommodate the broad demographic which attends the event and allows us to increase comfort, with patrons welcome to bring picnic rugs and chairs (for designated areas), a unique seated Theatre Stage, a wine and Little Creatures beer tent, a massive seated and shaded international food court, expanded Freo-style markets, grassy banks overlooking the festival and Fremantle town and an Under-18s Discount Ticket for families, plus much more. But the festival remains committed to bringing you the finest in entertainment from the world over.


Headlining will be Crowded House. The Aussie band produced well remembered songs such as Weather With You and Don't Dream It's Over still resonate across Australian airwaves year in, year out as certified classics. And the exciting news is the band is back in the studio recording a brand new album of anthems to follow up 2007's exceptional Time On Earth, and will be released just in time for their performance at Fremantle Park.


More than 40 bands will descend on Fremantle Park across four stages for the seventh annual West Coast Blues 'n' Roots Festival for a true feast of song, in a spectacular and comfortable new setting.
