The day will also feature plenty of food. Be it tacos, curry, dumplings, bao or crepes that sets your mouth watering, the melting pot of flavours found within Western Australia will be at your fingertips via an impressive line-up of international food trucks at Eat Street.
Those wanting a more sophisticated bite can visit the licensed Urban Providore where Perth’s most popular restaurants will be serving up their flagship dishes and local produce will also be showcased and available to purchase.
SOTA Festival is a collaboration derived from the desire to support, nurture and grow the creative opportunities for local artists and to further position contemporary music as a leading cultural identifier for WA.
