The Town of Port Hedland will bring Eskimo Joe and Dan Sultan to Hedland as part of the 2024 Odyssea Festival.

In addition, the Red Country Music Festival will feature on Hedland’s live music calendar as the Town confirms a $375,000 three-year sponsorship initiative for music and arts events.

Town of Port Hedland Mayor Peter Carter said it was an exciting announcement to share with the Hedland community.

“Eskimo Joe and Dan Sultan are well-known Australian names in alternative rock music and will put on a great show for our community. This is the music event people have been asking for, and I’m pleased to confirm this headline act for the 2024 Odyssea Music and Arts Journey,” Mayor Carter said.

A further $235,000 was supported for a range of touring events, including ARTRAGE’s Rocky Horror Picture Show Immersive Experience, Scribblers on the Road Festival, a community concert to celebrate WA regional music and Emma Donavon to perform during NAIDOC Week.

“This decision follows Council's commitment in December 2023 to create a vibrant mix of live music, arts, and cultural events for our community,” he said.

“The Town of Port Hedland is committed to providing quality events to improve liveability in Hedland by connecting our community with a lively and engaging cultural scene in Hedland.”

The event programming provides entertainment that caters to a wide range of interests and provide both free and ticketed options for the community.

"Events play a key role in our community, offering shared experiences that bring people together and contribute to our town's vibrancy."

“This initiative is about more than just entertainment; it’s about building a sense of community and enhancing Hedland’s cultural landscape.

As the Town of Port Hedland prepares for these upcoming events, community members are encouraged to follow the Town’s social media channels and sign up for the In the Loop e-newsletter to stay up to date.
