MELBOURNE trio Kingswood will headline this year’s City of Wanneroo Global Beats & Eats event next month in Marangaroo joined by an array of quality acts from Australia and New Zealand.

The free event on March 17 is set to draw music and food lovers to Paloma Park to experience the sounds and tastes from around the world.

Fresh off their 2017 national tour, Kingswood will play hits from their debut album Microscopic Wars, and latest LP After Hours, Close to Dawn, showcasing their electric old school RnB sounds mixed with rock’n’roll and smooth soul.

Returning to Global Beats & Eats this year will be crowd favourites Jakubi with their buffet of pop, RnB, hip-hop, rock and soul.

WA’s own Luke Fox will also open the event with his trademark brand of laidback, breezy feels.

Australian singer/songwriter Hein Cooper will delight fans with his signature voice, emotive lyrics and unique mix of indie and pop.

Kiwi band Summer Thieves will get the crowd pumping with their melting pot of reggae, hip-hop, rock and funk.

There will also be a display of colourful roving musicians and talented dancers to keep crowds entertained.

Free children’s activities will be on offer including drumming workshops, tribal face painting and headband making.

When hunger pangs hit, guests can head to one of the food trucks for a choice of cuisines from around the globe, including Arabic, French, Indian, Mexican, Spanish and Thai.

Gluten free, vegetarian and vegan options will be available.

The City of Wanneroo family-friendly event will be smoke and alcohol free.
