3 acts not to miss during Westfield Kotara’s Rooftop Gig Series

Over the summer a host of local artists will take to the stage at Westfield Kotara as part of their Rooftop Gig Series. Here’s three acts not to miss.


Hornet are a high energy, guitar-drive rock group, laying down a retro rock-influenced sound with a modern twist. Hornet′s successful style is simple, combining infectious tunes that girls love to dance to, with in-you-face rock. Blowing the roof off every room east-coast Australia has to offer for the best part of a decade, Hornet have released 5 albums under their original music moniker The Humm, experienced 3 top 10 singles in the Australian charts, and sold in excess of 10,000 units nationally.

WHEN: Thursday December 3 from 6:00 PM until 9:00 PM

Josh & Joey

Josh and Joey are an acoustic duo from Newcastle. Both grew up in musical families and began singing and playing instruments at a young age. They met at the Newcastle Conservatorium of Music while in their first year of University. Both graduated in 2014 with a Bachelor of Music majoring in performance.

Realising their shared passion for harmony-based acoustic music, Josh and Joey decided to form the duo, focussing their efforts into expanding their repertoire, and experimenting with songs of different genres and styles. Harmonies are frequently used in the works of Josh and Joey, as well as gentle finger picked guitar, rhythmic strumming and live looping.

WHEN: Sunday December 13 from 1:00 PM until 4:00 PM


Hummingbirds have a repertoire with everything you need to keep people on the dance floor at your wedding, local venue or corporate event.

The members of Hummingbirds were hand picked not only for their stunning musicianship, but for there love of entertaining. All members of Hummingbirds come with their individual playing or touring experience, including current signed artists or professional corporate cover bands from Sydney and Newcastle.
