FREMANTLE INTERNATIONAL STREET ARTS FESTIVAL Turning 21


The Fremantle International Street Arts Festival is returning to the streets of Fremantle for its 21st birthday over the Easter long weekend, Friday, April 19 until Monday, April 22.

This year’s four-day festival promises 28 international performers from 10 different countries, including France, Switzerland, USA and China. Festival-goers can expect to be see Australian debuts, as well as returning performances, both of which will rove through the port town over the long weekend.

Highlights include Cho Kairinaward-winning and death-defying, the ‘King of Chinese Acrobats’ bringing a lifetime of acrobatic mastery that will thrill and surprise Fremantle for the first time ever; The Space Cowboy, back by extremely popular demand, one of the most innovative sword swallowers alive today; Nuptial Ropesa burlesque wedding performance, with a foolish charm, hailing from Switzerland, this couple performs a modern circus act that combines physical theatre, acrobats and mime; and Bug n’ Buzz, which transforms cutlery, glassware, and tabletops into musical instruments with endless sample loops to create a soundscape for Bug to dance her way robotically through and around, in this infectious and innovative concordance.

Following a sensational response from locals at last year’s Seraphim Bar, FISAF 2019 will welcome an array of pop up bars for festival-goers to sit back and enjoy the fest – all while sipping a local brew. This includes the Newport Hotel, which will present some of WA’s best musicians throughout the weekend.

Fremantle International Street Arts Festival returns on the Easter long weekend, Friday, April 19 until Monday, April 22 to the streets of Fremantle.
