It’s a hot, humid January day in Fremantle. Specifically, Walyalup Koort, formerly King’s Square in the city centre. The gathered crowd occupies the entire space. The music on the loudspeaker is playing the anthems of yesteryear while live artists perform favourite songs and original hip hop and rap. Families are looking out for their kids either swarming the playground or sitting for face painting. The presence of many teenagers and young adults gives the whole event a festive vibe reminiscent of university and youth gatherings in the 60s.
