(19/12/18) Montaigne headlines One Day in Freo

Sydney-based singer-songwriter Montaigne will be the headline act at January’s One Day in Fremantle event.

The 23-year-old won an ARIA award in 2016 for best breakthrough artist following the success of her debut album Glorious Heights, which featured the singles 'Because I Love You' and 'In the Dark'.

The Triple J favourite also featured on the Hilltop Hoods hit '1955'.

She recently released a new single 'For Your Love' and will be returning to Fremantle in April next year as part of a national tour.

Montaigne will be joined on stage by up-and-coming South Australian soul singer Adrian Eagle, fresh off his European tour supporting the Hilltop Hoods earlier this year.

More artists will be announced in the coming weeks.

Mayor Brad Pettitt said One Day in Fremantle was now an established event on the City of Fremantle’s events calendar.

“We started One Day in 2017 with the aim of creating an inclusive, family-friendly event in which all people can come together to celebrate what’s great about being Australian,” Mayor Pettitt said.

“We’re just thrilled about how One Day has been embraced by the community and has already become one of Freo’s favourite events.

“Everyone is welcome to come down to Freo to enjoy some great music, fantastic food and an amazing, uplifting atmosphere.”  

The event on 27 January will begin with a smoking ceremony at Bathers Beach at 8am, followed by a host of Aboriginal cultural workshops and activities at Kidogo Arthouse for everyone to enjoy.

At 2pm the focus will shift to the Esplanade Reserve for the One Day concert.

In addition to the performers on the main stage there will also be activities, entertainment and food trucks.
