MORE than 5500 people watched The Isolites and Cheap Fakes deliver the first Music in the Park concert for 2019 at Falkland Park in Kinross on Saturday night.

The Isolites, who hit the stage first, were quick to thank the City and concertgoers via its Facebook page.

“Big thanks to the City of Joondalup and everyone who came down for Music in the Park yesterday – we had a ball,” it said.

“Great to see so many people dancing too.”

After the sun went down, it was Cheap Fakes’ turn to shine.

Fresh from playing a gig in Margaret River the previous night, the Queensland band’s setlist featured a mix of soul-soaked brass-fuelled pop, funk and ska.

Guests are welcome to bring a picnic or buy food on the night. Children’s activities will be from 5pm and the concert starts 6pm.
