In September of 2013 and 2014, Newman’s town centre came to life as Strut & Fret presented the Outback Fusion Festival – a 4 day celebration of the towns vibrant multiculturalism and diverse community.
Presented by BHP Billiton Iron Ore and The Shire of East Pilbara
The dynamic and lively program featured a live music program headlined by Vika & Linda Bull (Black Sorrows), outdoor street theatre, an international food market, the Black Tie & Hi-Vis Special Social Event, and the world’s largest multi-octave fire organ – The Pyrophone Juggernaut shooting flames 15m into the air!
The purpose of the event is to promote and showcase how an isolated community such as the Pilbara can successfully engage its unique mix of residents, including its indigenous community, ethnic communities, families, FIFO’s and the 37 varying cultures. The community is engaged to participate and contribute, in the Festival, reinforcing the unique characteristics of the township of Newman. It is also to encourage visitors to the area and offer the local community a unique and fun cultural experience.
The Outback Fusion Festival is proudly presnted BHP Billiton Iron Ore with the support of The Shire of East Pilbara.
