Over 8,000 people flocked to Paloma Park in Marangaroo to enjoy Global Beats & Eats presented by LiveLighter 2017.
Seychelles Islander Grace Barbé opened the event with a fusion of tropical rhythms before folk duo Salt Tree, Sydneysiders Caravaňa Sun and quintet Jakubi wowed the audience with sizzling sets. Headliners San Cisco had the crowd grooving as they belted out famous hits and new tracks from their highly anticipated upcoming album.
Tasty offerings from Perth’s best food vans kept eventgoers well fed with everything from traditional Indian to Japanese street food ensuring a host of options. Chinese lion dancers weaved through the crowd while Polynesian hula dancers, samba drummers and colourful carnival performers delighted audiences with their high-energy performances.
