Our events


The vision of OPEN MINDS MUSIC is to present a monthly music showcase for all the music lovers around Fremantle / Perth.

We are keen to present ourselves as an “inclusive” community event incorporating a range of Perth’s ethnic and cultural groups showcasing each community’s musical roots – thereby bringing together different cultures in a common way of expression - music.

A unique entertaining talent show, YOU SAW THEM FIRST!, where new and emerging artists will be well introduced by a “celebrity” MC who will keep an high engagement between the artist and the public.

A good opportunity for the local community to discover and support new and emerging music talents to make their music to be heard.

From the DINNER & SHOW option you can expect live music accompanied with delicious food by a very respectable chef, Stuart E Laws and impeccable service from the staff.

We also have to offer amazing beers from the Otherside Brewing to make your night unforgettable.

You are always welcome to come and join us even only for the live show!
