It will be anything but the ‘Sound of Silence’ at the Kingston Butter Factory when homegrown musical superstar Dami Im launches another fantastic year of Eats & Beats in the City of Logan.

The Daisy Hill raised songstress, who rose to international fame on the Eurovision song contest, will headline a blockbuster line-up on the KBF outdoor stage on Friday night, February 25.

Admission is free to Logan City Council’s bi-monthly Eats & Beats musical and entertainment extravaganza.

Dami, who won X-Factor Australia in 2013, earned Australia’s highest ever Eurovision score in 2016 when she finished second to Sweden with her worldwide smash hit Sound of Silence.

She will perform fan favourites during her KBF appearance, as well as songs from her new album My Reality.

The Pulse Chamber Orchestra, led by world-renowned conductor and fellow City of Logan product Dane Lam, will accompany two of Dami’s songs.

Also on the star-studded entertainment bill is local artist Zeek Power, who has become a favourite of Eats & Beats regulars.

Logan City Council has transformed the historic Kingston Butter Factory into a world-class cultural precinct, now home to the city’s largest purpose-built outdoor events space.

The outdoor precinct also includes the popular Devon Pixies Tea House, which is now open.

The Logan City Historical Museum, the Living Museum of Logan and the Blackbox Theatre will also open at KBF soon.

City Lifestyle Chair Councillor Laurie Koranski said the year’s first Eats & Beats event would be a night to remember.

“With Dami Im headlining, this is a phenomenal line-up for the first Eats & Beats event at our fabulous, reimagined Kingston Butter Factory,” Cr Koranski said.

“Dami is a wonderful local success story and I urge everyone to come along to celebrate her achievements and hopefully be inspired to chase their own dreams.

“The KBF is a new era for entertainment in the City of Logan and this not-to-be-missed Eats & Beats is just a taste of things to come for this fantastic new cultural precinct.”

Division 2 Councillor Teresa Lane said Eats & Beats was another great community event helping to launch the revamped Kingston Butter Factory precinct.

“Our local community has kicked off the new year in style having already celebrated the first of the new monthly Milky Way Markets at the Kingston Butter Factory, as well as Waitangi Day earlier this month,” Cr Lane said.

“Eats & Beats is a great City of Logan event that is hugely popular with Division 2 families and the broader community. I can’t wait to see it celebrated here in our backyard.”

Food and drink will be available for purchase from a range of food trucks from 5pm, with favourites such as Rustic Pastel, Jungle Bean, Twisted Tasty Tatoes and Bao Time, rolling up for the party.

Eats & Beats is a free community event, but attendees must register on the Logan Arts website. Proof of vaccination will be required on entry.

The Kingston Butter Factory is at 270 Jacaranda Avenue, Kingston.
