COLAB FESTIVAL: A NEW, COLLABORATIVE, CREATIVE MUSIC AND ARTS EVENT FOR PERTH

The collective festival dreams of our community’s best creative teams, CoLAB Festival is a one of a kind festival built on the collective ideals of local WA crews – from music industry representatives, Perth-based creative’s, food innovators and UWA clubs to the nation’s leading live music acts. CoLAB is the result of good people doing great things, bringing to life exactly what they’d like to see from a festival in WA. CoLAB will take place in the beautiful surrounds of the University of Western Australia, on Saturday 29 November 2014.

CoLAB Festival 2014

Presenting this new collaboration is the nation’s leading youth radio station, triple j, as well as Australia’s premier music and arts guide, The Music. Also in on the action is one of our state’s most reputable unis, University of WA, whose input involves not only use of their riverside location as the site for CoLAB Festival, but the active involvement of different UWA groups and clubs. The clubs will help bring CoLAB to life, assisting with theming and event ideas as well as EMAS (Electronic Music Appreciation Club) presenting and programming The Tav Stage.

Also in on the CoLAB spirit are several bright, forward-thinking, innovative local companies and business – including Uber Perth (offering a free $40 ride to all punters*) and local Americana food and bevvy haunt Varsity Bar just to name a few. Perth’s best independent food trucks and hawkers will be bringing their A-game to create a mini food festival, while custom-created bars will be there to wet your whistle all day. A chemistry lab-themed bar with scientists mixing kooky concoctions is just one of the unique bar experiences in store.

Punters will have the opportunity to broaden their artistic horizons via a host of artistic delights that will see local creatives teaming up to produce spectacular visual and performance works for CoLAB festival day –think art installations, live art, interactive comedy and theatre. Watch this space!

A boutique festival, CoLAB will be open to all, but kept at a tidy size – so the usual large, hyperactive, ill-mannered crowds of other music festivals wont be anywhere in sight – CoLAB will turn your negative festival feels right ‘round. CoLab is an ‘appreciation day’ – of the best music, food, arts and new ideas – a chance for Perth community to unite and enjoy ourselves under blue skies.

CoLAB provides a chance to re-live the fun, carefree golden vibes of your university days; or if you’re still studying, what better way to celebrate the end of exams than to share an amazing day with your peers, designed by your peers!
