Perth Comedy Festival Gala

The Comedy Festival’s biggest international stars and up-and-coming comedians will hit the stage for the Perth Comedy Festival Gala on May 1st & 8th at Subiaco’s Regal Theatre. Tickets are sold out for May 1st, so you’d best get tickets quickly for this night of non-stop laughs.


Groovin’ The Moo

Groovin’ The Moo on May 11th offers a full day of country hospitality, incredible tunes and a relaxed atmosphere. The music festival’s lineup features the likes of Thelma Plum, Hilltop Hoods, MO, Hermitude and Billie Eilish. Tickets are still available for what promises to be a road-trip-worthy day to remember.


Dean Lewis

Tickets are still available for Dean Lewis’ ‘A Place We Knew’ national tour at HBF Stadium on May 15th. The multi-platinum selling artist hit Billboard’s ‘Chart Breaker’ in October last year, and his song ‘Be Alright’ was voted #6 on triple j’s hottest 100 in January – so this is a concert you won’t want to miss.


Cable Beach Polo

Hit the pristine sands of Broome’s iconic Cable Beach for Australia’s only multi-day beach tournament, the Cable Beach Polo, on May 18th & 19th. This extraordinary polo spectacle is free to watch picnic-style from the sand, or opt for the VIP Marquee if you feel like a luxurious weekend away.


HBF Run for a Reason

Perth’s largest and most popular community health event, the HBF Run for a Reason, returns for its 10th consecutive year on May 19th! Participants can run, walk, or jog, and courses range from a 4km, 12km and a half marathon.
