Cancel your plans Perth because we’re coming at you with three jam-packed days of things to do as part of the new Forrest LIVE festival. From 11 October through to 13 October, you’ll be treated to next-level entertainers and DJs, mouth-watering food and drink offerings and even a spot of video gaming.
Gear up, here’s everything you should check out at Forrest LIVE.
Bust Shapes At The WAMFest Exclusive Launch
Friday 11 October
Hot off Falls Festival, Splendour In The Grass and sold-out shows across the country, Spacey Jane are hitting the Forrest LIVE stage to kick off the festival on Friday as part of the exclusive WAMFest launch. Turn up the volume and bust shapes to the tunes of these rising indie-pop performers and other local acts like Downsyde, The Money War and Gazey.
Customise Your Denim
Friday 11 October
We’re all about adding a little personality to our denim and luckily Levi’s is coming to our aid with Levi’s® Tailor Shop taking place on Friday. Add a patch or two to your old or new Levi’s threads like denim trucker jackets, wide-leg jeans and overalls. The ‘90s called and they’re all about this lewk.
Get Zen With A Free Yoga Class
Sunday 13 October
The queens of leggings, Lululemon, are kicking off your Sunday with a bit of zen at a free yoga class. Suitable for any fitness level and hosted by leading instructors, prepare to get your downward dog or child’s pose on in style—we suggest stocking up on some killer activewear before the session so that you can look fly while chilling out.
Pamper-Up At The Beauty Hub
Throughout the festival, you’ll also have the chance to glam-up at the beauty hub. Learn from the pros as brands like Dior, Estee Lauder and Benefit spill their beauty secrets in a series of workshops and hands-on tutorials. By the end of it you’ll be nailing that skincare regime, killing the contour game and making sure those eyebrows are on fleek.
Devour Delicious Street Eats
Prepare to drool because Forrest LIVE is serving up a sweet selection of street eats all weekend long. Take a trip to Mexico with Mojito Kantina who are offering foodie faves like burritos, nachos and tacos with a solid dose of guacamole. La Tartiflette will be serving their gooey, cheesy goodness all weekend with a traditional French dish called Tartiflette—starring slow-cooked diced potatoes, creamy sauce, a choice of bacon, roast chicken or mushrooms mixed with crumbled feta and topped with melted camembert cheese. Pauly K’s Kitchen, Tapi Truck and Shak Shuka will also be there to meet all your mouth-watering needs.
Battle It Out With Video Games
If you’re into button-smashing, look no further than the Ground Zero Gaming pop-up. You’ll have the chance to challenge your mates to an e-sports battle on one of the latest video games, or opt for one of the many tabletop games around the grounds—did someone say table tennis? Or if you're feeling up to the challenge, take on pro international esports gamers who will also be making an appearance at the event hosted by local esports legends Captain Perth and Grizzly Gaming.
Kick Back In The Beer Garden
If video games and yoga is all just a bit too much, kick back and unwind at the beer garden all weekend long. Gather the crew for a cold one under the sun and enjoy the backdrop of epic tunes from the DJs. Better yet, snag your favourite bite from the on-site food trucks and call this lazy Saturday or Sunday sorted.
