The inner city music festival synonymous with quality, both on and off the stage will once again deliver the sound track of your formative years and the quintessential festival experience right to your doorstep on November 5.
Now in it’s third year and after the huge success of last years sell out event, Live at the Foreshore is back. Putting together a cracker lineup of Aussie talent just for Newcastle. We are a city built on good times and great music. Once happy to see our favourite band in the back room of a pub but as we matured, our tastes become more refined. Novacastrians still crave the live music experience but in a boutique atmosphere which Live at the Foreshore delivers in spades.
The only change this year will be the temporary relocation to the gorgeous Wickham Park. When asked about the reason for the move the festival promoter Brent Lean said ” Yes a change of venue this year due to the works required at The Foreshore for the Vroom Vrooms. We’re excited about having a crack at a new venue. It’s a beautiful green space that gives us a load of options to create another great rockin’ day. Only a few minutes up the road from The Foreshore with great transport network at the door”
As the new location comes to life with all the hits you know and love, Live at the Foreshore bringing more to the music, the festival food experience takes you on its own journey, Fresh from the Yatai: Japanese Street Food. Get your fill of Japanese comfort food; from areas like Hokkaido and Hiroshima, this year’s festival food will have alleys dedicated to regional specialties: miso ramen and okonomiyaki. Feel like eating food in a market-like setting in a festival? Like Japan’s infamous Fukuoka, you will be whisked away into Japanese styled enclave dotted with backstreet, laneway styled food stalls. Yatai at Live at the Foreshore, for many, will be the best opportunity to try some Japanese street culture first hand. In fact, one could say that the atmosphere of an immersive experience is that of a street food market.
If you don’t feel like traipsing your taste buds around the world, we will have some festival delights on offer as well. Food trucks, sweet treats and Newcastle’s own savoury treasures for you to discover including Lizotte’s onsite cafe providing snacks and beverages catering to the coffee and high tea aficionados in a garden styled outdoor lounge setting! The perfect place for you to kick back and enjoy the music.
Small batch brew craft beer, wine, specialty brewed festival cider and fresh poured mixed spirits and artisan cocktails will be on offer to the strictly over 18 music lovers. The relaxing lush parklands will be an idyllic setting for the Hunt & Gather Markets and their artisan retail therapy. To take optimum advantage of the gorgeous Newcastle springtime sun, gates will open at 12.30pm with the last act finishing up at 8pm. What a perfect way to spend a Sunday session.
If you missed tickets to last years sell out LIVE AT THE FORESHORE we feel your pain. We know you are sick of seeing photos of your Facebook friends laying around in the warm glow of the spring sun. You don’t want to hear one more story about how they sipped good wine and sung along with one of your childhood hero’s as they play live just a few feet away.
Pre sale tickets are available on April 6 and Tickets are on sale to the general public on April 10. All you need to do is secure you spot on the grass early.
