Geraldton gets a taste of Triple J’s hottest

Triple J regulars, I Know Leopard will head to Geraldton this weekend as part of their national tour for The Set List for one massive outdoor show at Lot 601 on the Geraldton Foreshore.

The band, who hails from Sydney, is excited to make the journey up to Geraldton after a successful tour so far in WA including Margaret River.

“We are really excited for Geraldton, as we will play amidst a festival so that sounds super fun,” said the bands frontman Luke O’Loughlin, “WA is a truly beautiful, peaceful state and we absolutely love having the time and opportunity to explore it right now [as part of the tour].”

I Know Leopard will be touring as part of an innovative new concert format called The Set List, that aims to bring young people on board to help plan and be the decision makers for the event.

“The Set List is a wonderful opportunity for us to engage with audiences that would otherwise be outside of our reach.” O’Loughlin said, “It's also great to be able to play all ages shows.”

Supporting I Know Leopard on their tour will be two local groups, The Inks & Carfax who were chosen through a competition by the band.

“This show will be one of the biggest shows I have ever played,” said local performer Carfax who will support I Know Leopard on Saturday, “I am extremely excited and honoured to say that I will be supporting such a unique and talented band.”

The I Know Leopard concert comes as part of the collaboration between the Sunshine Festival, G Fest and the City of Greater Geraldton as the inaugural Festivals on the Foreshore event, which has seen a weeklong of activities and events on the Foreshore.

“I really think Geraldton needs this and want this because I feel like I Know Leopard is bringing something fresh and new to the community’s ears,” said Carfax.

The event will see gates open in Lot 601, across from the Geraldton Regional Library at 4.00pm with the first act kicking off from 4.30pm.

Tickets are only $10 and can be purchased before the show at the QPT website, or on the gate, this is an all ages event.
