WA Unlocked Perth at HBF Stadium 18 July 2020

WA Unlocked, which will be held at HBF Stadium, will feature popular local acts Crooked Colours , ShockOne, Slumberjack, and Tina Says.

This will be the first major live music event to be held in WA following the COVID-19 pandemic, which is a further testament to WA's outstanding management of the health crisis.

This comes after the Premier's Phase 4 announcement to further ease restrictions around capacity within venues commencing on June 27. It is anticipated that Western Australia will move to Phase 5, which will see all restrictions lifted, on July 18.

Essentially this means Optus Stadium could host a crowd of up to 60,000 people, RAC Arena could welcome 14,000 fans, and HBF Park 22,000.

This is fantastic news for the WA music and event industry, as well as the thousands of music fans who will get the chance to see their favourite local bands for the first time since March.

With major restrictions inhibiting public mass gatherings across the entertainment and sporting event space and forcing the closure of Perth's world class venues, the live entertainment industry has been hit hard. The lifting of restrictions will provide some hope.

The resumption of live events means thousands of Western Australians are set to be gainfully employed across several industries, including events, catering, music, production, transport, retail and hospitality.
