Louise AllinghamPilbara News

Exmouth is set for a hot line-up of acts at this year’s Ningaloo Whale Shark Festival.

Bands, fire acts and aerial displays are on the agenda to keep punters of all ages entertained.

Sydney band Caravana Sun are this year’s headline act who will have crowds dancing all night with their surf rock tunes.

The Caravana Sun boys have spent the past couple of years taking their music to festivals in the Netherlands, Portugal, Australia, Malta and Switzerland.

However, band member Luke Carra said they were no strangers to the WA coast.

“We’ve been coming over for the last few years and had some really great shows and support from people on the West coast since day dot,” he said.

The band also recorded their most recent album set for release in June in Fremantle.

Carra said the band is “pumped” to perform at the festival and swim with the whale sharks.

“We’ve always wanted to come up to Exmouth and see the whales and swim with them which we’re actually going to be lucky enough to do so when we were invited to come up we were pretty stoked,” he said.

Also performing at the festival will be three piece fiesta band Kallidad.

Kallidad will kick off celebrations at the Gala Opening Festival on May 27 at the Ningaloo Novotel Resort.

Talanjee Oval will see fire, acrobatic, comedy group Zap Circus give audiences a show.

The Ningaloo whale Shark Festival will be held from May 25-29 around the Exmouth town centre.
