Couple that with great beer, street food and a walk down memory lane… You’re in for a good time.

Since first presenting Live At The Foreshore back in 2015, we’ve been collecting special moments from the festival. Moments that will often never be repeated again, moments that make memories for a life time…

So, in no particular order, here’s 5 unforgettable Live At The Foreshore moments….[/cs_text][/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section][cs_section bg_color=”hsla(0, 0%, 0%, 0.03)” parallax=”false” separator_top_type=”none” separator_top_height=”50px” separator_top_angle_point=”50″ separator_bottom_type=”none” separator_bottom_height=”50px” separator_bottom_angle_point=”50″ style=”margin: 0px;padding: 45px 0px;”][cs_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” style=”margin: 0px auto;padding: 0px;”][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/1″ style=”padding: 0px;”][x_custom_headline level=”h2″ looks_like=”h3″ accent=”true”]Newcastle’s godfathers of rock[/x_custom_headline][x_gap size=”50px”][x_video_embed no_container=”true” type=”16:9″]

[/x_video_embed][cs_text]An Oz Rock Supergroup featuring the Grant Walmsley “Freebird” & Craig “Rosie” Rosevear (The Screaming Jets) Rose Tattoo guitarist Dai Pritchard, & Faceplant”s Paul Coxon and the Newcastle’s very own Lady of Rock Holly Jane Wilson opened Live At The Foreshore 2015 with a ripping performance of The Screaming Jets classic “Come On”. It set the scene for what ended up being one hell of a walk down memory lane and the festival progressed into the afternoon and early eventing.[/cs_text][/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section][cs_section parallax=”false” separator_top_type=”none” separator_top_height=”50px” separator_top_angle_point=”50″ separator_bottom_type=”none” separator_bottom_height=”50px” separator_bottom_angle_point=”50″ style=”margin: 0px;padding: 45px 0px;”][cs_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” style=”margin: 0px auto;padding: 0px;”][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/1″ style=”padding: 0px;”][x_gap size=”50px”][/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section][cs_section bg_color=”hsla(0, 0%, 0%, 0.03)” parallax=”false” separator_top_type=”none” separator_top_height=”50px” separator_top_angle_point=”50″ separator_bottom_type=”none” separator_bottom_height=”50px” separator_bottom_angle_point=”50″ style=”margin: 0px;padding: 45px 0px;”][cs_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” style=”margin: 0px auto;padding: 0px;”][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/1″ style=”padding: 0px;”][x_custom_headline level=”h2″ looks_like=”h3″ accent=”true”]Adam Thompson gets hands on with the crowd[/x_custom_headline][x_gap size=”50px”][x_video_embed no_container=”true” type=”16:9″]

[/x_video_embed][cs_text]You can never be sure of what you’re in store for when Adam Thompson of Chocolate Starfish jumps on stage. The enigmatic performer didn’t disappoint in 2016 when he leapt from the stage to get all hands on with the crowd during the band’s performance of Carly Simon’s 1972 song, You’re So Vain which the Chocolate Starfish had a top 10 hit with back in 1993.

Due to popular demand, Chocolate Starfish will perform again at this year’s Live At The Foreshore Festival.

[/x_video_embed][cs_text]Shannon Noll released a version of the Peter Gabriel / Kate Bush song Don’t Give Up as a charity single in 2006 with Natalie Bassingthwaighte. But we have to say that the powerful yet delicate duet Shannon sang with Lyn Bowtell during 2015’s Live At The Foreshore left it for dead. Truly one of the best festival moments we’ve ever witnessed.

A post shared by Tania Partridge (@tarn66) on

[/cs_text][cs_text]What do you get when you cross Ross THE BOSS Wilson and his band with everyone else on the bill at Live At The Foreshore 2016? The answer is Evie… Parts 1, 2 & 3! Those that left early to catch the 8 o’clock train were kicking themselves when footage of this hit social media moments after the final chord was played. It’s not often you get moments like this at a festival.[/cs_text][/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section][cs_section parallax=”false” separator_top_type=”none” separator_top_height=”50px” separator_top_angle_point=”50″ separator_bottom_type=”none” separator_bottom_height=”50px” separator_bottom_angle_point=”50″ style=”margin: 0px;padding: 45px 0px;”][cs_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” style=”margin: 0px auto;padding: 0px;”][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/1″ style=”padding: 0px;”][x_gap size=”50px”][/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section][cs_section bg_color=”hsla(0, 0%, 0%, 0.03)” parallax=”false” separator_top_type=”none” separator_top_height=”50px” separator_top_angle_point=”50″ separator_bottom_type=”none” separator_bottom_height=”50px” separator_bottom_angle_point=”50″ style=”margin: 0px;padding: 45px 0px;”][cs_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” style=”margin: 0px auto;padding: 0px;”][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/1″ style=”padding: 0px;”][x_custom_headline level=”h2″ looks_like=”h3″ accent=”true”]Moving Pictures play never[/x_custom_headline][x_gap size=”50px”][x_video_embed no_container=”true” type=”16:9″]

[/x_video_embed][cs_text]Moving Pictures never play their song Never. And for good reason too. In an interview in 2014, frontman Alex Smith revealed that the band was never paid for the song’s use in the film:

“We never got paid the first time round… we were just the lowest part of the food chain.

Gobbled up by companies and people that suddenly stopped existing when we asked where our money was… the things you get talked into doing!

Anyway we got to record at Sound City and The Record Plant, but a couple of bucks would have been nice. Hence, we ‘Never’ play the song.”

So you can imagine our surprise when the band launched into the song during their 2015 Live At The Foreshore festival slot.

And to top it off… Alex Smith got his shirt off. Hold yourself back ladies… [/cs_text][/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section][cs_section parallax=”false” separator_top_type=”none” separator_top_height=”50px” separator_top_angle_point=”50″ separator_bottom_type=”none” separator_bottom_height=”50px” separator_bottom_angle_point=”50″ style=”margin: 0px;padding: 45px 0px;”][cs_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” style=”margin: 0px auto;padding: 0px;”][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/1″ style=”padding: 0px;”][x_custom_headline level=”h2″ looks_like=”h3″ accent=”false”]Live At The Foreshore 2017 [/x_custom_headline][x_gap size=”50px”][cs_text]Live at the Foreshore is back & bigger.
