A swag of big names will hit the Geraldton Multipurpose Centre stage this Sunday for the RedFM Open Air Arena Concert as part of Festivals on the Foreshore.

Former X Factor winner Reece Mastin and X Factor contenders The Fisher Boys will grace the stage for a free all ages concert, with local group Songbird also performing.

City of Greater Geraldton Mayor Shane Van Styn said the concert would be a great event for the whole family to enjoy.

“Bring a picnic rug, enjoy the entertainment and take in a beautiful Geraldton sunset while you’re at it,” he said.

“It’s amazing to see even more big names hit the Geraldton stage and we are very fortunate enough to have these amazing acts as part of Festivals on the Foreshore.”

After taking out the X Factor title in 2011, Reece Mastin has already amassed a stockpile of further achievements including two platinum #1 albums, three consecutive chart-topping radio-blasting singles and most recently, a platinum #1 DVD release.

Reece has just released his new album Beautiful Nightmare and says he is looking forward to touring and showing Australia his new music.

"I really hope there's a great reaction to the material from Australian audiences, and from there I'd like to then take the project overseas to see what happens there,” he said.

“I just wanna be able to tour with this record and have kids sing the songs back to me, or have kids on Twitter or Facebook just telling me that they love the record - that would be crazy!

“I just want people to love the music I'm writing and singing, and feel like they're right there in the moment with me.”

Festivals on the Foreshore kicked off on September 30 and runs through to October 16.

There is still loads of great activities and you can head to for a full programme of events.

Festivals on the Foreshore was made possible by a grant from Tourism WA.
