31st December, 3pm | Origin NYE 2016 | Claremont Showgrounds | Tickets

Folks, never fear! With the devastating news of Childish Gambino skipping out on Fremantle’s Laneway Festival next year, Origin is still planning to provide the goods with the ultimate banger of a line-up! And clearly, heading to Origin is the only logical way to make up for this loss that has hit this state hard. If you’re still mulling about whether to go, or just in case you’ve somehow managed not to see the line-up yet, let me just give you the highlights: A$AP Rocky, Chance The Rapper, Chase & Status, Die Antwoord, Pendulum. This is going to be the biggest Origin yet so don’t miss out!


31st December, 6pm | Rosemount Hotel NYE Fiesta | Rosemount Hotel, North Perth | $28 

Twenty-sixteen has been a bumpy ride but along the way a lot of good has come. Exhibit A: the sheer amount of local talent that has ascended out of Perth’s music scene. This New Year’s Eve, celebrate the good, bid farewell to the bad, and welcome a new year of damn good music with Rosemount Hotel’s massive multi-stage line-up! The main stage will be graced with local faves Psychedelic Porn Crumpets, POW! Negro, Benjamin Witt, Doctopus and Reef Prince ft. DJ Hame. In the close quarters of Bar Four5Nine, The Chlorines, FOAM, Cloning the Mammoth, and more take the stage. And in the backyard, Soukoss Internationale alongside sets by an all-girl DJ trifecta that is DJ Caitlin Nienaber, DJ Shannon Fox and DJ Holly Doll!


31st December, 8pm | MOJOz NYE Pardi!!! | Mojos Bar, North Fremantle | $20

Brought to you by the gals of Recycled Rainbow, this NYE bash will be nothing but grooooovy vibes matched with a helluva good line-up. From Hideous Sun Demon, Dream Rimmy and Spaceman, to Moonlighter, Ah Trees, BOAT SHOW, and a heck of a lot more, come get glittered up and boogie down the last remaining hours of 2016!
