Free Concert: Newtown Rocksteady.

  • When: 12th Jan 5:30pm
  • Where: Carrara Park

Newtown Rocksteady have been favourites at the Newtown Festival for many years, and James Coyle, one of the Trustees of the new Newtown Festival Trust, is a founding member. James is in the middle of the back row in the cover photo – the man in the black hat!

Newtown Rocksteady’s first performance was in Carrara Park just over 10 years ago – and this concert welcomes them home.

The Newtown Festival is proud to support Newtown Rocksteady in producing this album.  ‘East of the Tasman’ is a milestone for the band: it’s their first full-length album after ten years together and has been a collaborative effort throughout. This is the last stop on their album release tour. Come and celebrate with them!
