And in a couple of months down the track, the streets of Freo are set to come alive with a big old music festival dedicated to Western Australian rock legend, Bon Scott.
Come Sunday 7 May between 1pm and 6pm, the free and homegrown celebration, High Voltage will host a slew of notable names in the music world, amongst a diverse line-up of more than 50 performances and events across the beaut afternoon.
From Australian rock and blues icons to charismatic cabaret stars, fiery punk rockers, gospel choirs and rock’n’rolling children’s lullabies, there will be something for everyone.

If you cast your mind back to 2020, you may remember Perth Festival’s smash-hit Highway To Hell. Well High Voltage is 2023’s revamped version as a street circuit for families and people of all ages.
This year’s festival will take place across three of Freo’s landmarks, with each zone offering different live experiences; from Fremantle Oval for the big sounds, and Wilson Park at South Beach for chilled beachside sounds and local food, to Esplanade Reserve for rockin’ family activities.
High Voltage will also see a hit parade of flatbed trucks with bands playing to audiences around a 5km street circuit; so no matter where you stroll, the vibes will be top-notch.
Get amongst the mammoth community event that celebrates the spirit of local icon Bon Scott at High Voltage on Sunday 7 May 2023 from 1pm until 6pm in the heart of picturesque Fremantle.
