MORE than 8000 people attended the City of Wanneroo’s annual Global Beats & Eats on Saturday at Paloma Park in Marangaroo.

Headlining trio Kingswood entertained the crowd with their eclectic sounds of old school R‘n’B mixed with rock ‘n’ roll and soul.

Returning favourites Jakubi showcased their pop, R‘n’B, hip-hop, rock and smooth soul sound.

Support acts also included WA’s own Luke Fox, Australian singer/songwriter Hein Cooper and Kiwi band Summer Thieves.

There were displays of colourful roving musicians and dancers, while children were kept entertained with free activities including drumming workshops, tribal face painting and headband making.

The cultural festivities were complemented by a selection of cuisines including food trucks representing all corners of the world from Mexico to France.

Global Beats & Eats brought the City of Wanneroo’s events season to a close, with the next season kicking off in spring.
