He said despite this year’s festival being scaled-back to a smaller line-up, the Town was pleased to be able to maintain the high quality of artists that the North West Festival had become known for.

“Community members will also be happy to see that we have made the festival much more accessible this year, with ticket prices set at $10 an adult.

He said the new location would offer the amazing views that Port Hedland is known for, and would provide a different feel to previous years.
