Thank you everyone, artists, venues and City of Maribyrnong for your hard work and patience with this reshuffle of a pretty big line-up from June to August 2021.
We're stoked that we managed to keep most of the line-up in tact, despite the postponement due to lockdown, thanks to the flexibility of artists and all involved. Sadly, few artists couldn’t make it for the August dates including June Jones, Tender Buttons and Way Sh*t amongst others, but we are lucky to have the following acts join our line-up:
Hayley Mary
P O P F I L T E R
Hollie Joyce (supporting Jazzparty on opening night)
West Set 2021 Presents :: Gabriella Cohen w/ Thibault + DJ Annaliese Redlich
Lil Groom headlines the Victoria University, Melbourne Australia showcase at Kindred Bandroom
@maisiepearle join the Love Shack Studios line-up Hotel Westwood.

With 61 acts, over 12 venues in 10 days, West Set is filling Footscray with 30 different events this Winter. Take 2.

Registrations are now essential for all gigs, whether paid or free, as part of new COVID regulations.

Thanks Pollyman for this pertinent song for Day #1 of Lockdown 4.0 in Melbourne with lyrics like "My brain is in the bottle"...

West Set festival is still happening at this stage and we are spending lockdown getting everything in order and getting excited.

If we all do get out of Lockdown in 7 days, see you all Westside for some music, food, drinks and community.

At least we have something to look forward to.

Pollyman is performing at Hotel Westwood on Saturday 12 June with Izy.

As a result of new Government announcements yesterday we are asking everyone to PLEASE register for the events you want to attend. You can do this via the FB events or via our website www.westsetfestival.com

Enjoy a line-up of local artists and DJs accompanied by a very drinkable wine list and a spicy Szechuan-eggplant sanga!

West Set are proud to present Black Cab!

With Andrew Coates, James Lee & Wes Holland.
Formed in 2004, Black Cab’s sound ranges from psychedelic krautrock to driving electronica, often drawing inspiration from Europe and American culture of the ’70’s and ’80’s. Their live performances feature world class 3D visuals and a blazing lazer light show. Something the band has become well renowned for.

Performing at Yarravilles own Kindred Studios alongside Tender Buttons + Steve Wide, be sure not to miss it!
