Rockingham will become a funky town when Australian new wave rockers Pseudo Echo ring in the New Year at the Rockingham New Year’s Eve concert.
Building on the success of last year’s celebrations, event coordinator Malcolm Barbera said this year’s concert was expanding into Bell Park, which meant more rides, more food and more fun while enjoying the last few hours of 2012.
“There’s a number of community groups who have come on board to do some fundraising, so they will be selling glow sticks and doing sausage sizzles alongside the food vendors,” Mr Barbera said.
“We’re expecting a crowd of about 20,000 again and the stage program runs from 5.30pm to midnight, with a firework display at midnight.
“We’re using all local performers, particularly those who competed in the City of Rockingham Festival of New Talent.”
Last year’s favourites Hit Factory are back for their second year performing at Rockingham’s New Year’s Eve.
The night will be rounded off with a performance by Pseudo Echo.
Mr Barbera said it would be a family-friendly way to celebrate New Year’s Eve and there would be plenty to see and do.“It’s going to be just like last year — only bigger!”
