Bilingual Fremantle band Mambo Chic, whose members hail from France, Algeria and Australia, and pop, R&B and reggae-influenced Phoenix King with his eight-piece band have been added to the bill.

They will join musician Kim Churchill and headliner Dan Sultan in entertaining crowds at the free event in Girrawheen on April 9.

“This year is no exception and I look forward to seeing residents enjoying themselves throughout the evening.”

The festival runs from 4 to 9pm on April 9 at Liddell Park in Girrawheen.
