Award-winning duo Electric Fields will be taking the stage at North Wollongong Beach on Saturday 17 September as part of Spin Fest – the city-wide celebration being held during the 2022 UCI Road World Championships!
Presented by Wollongong City Council, this inclusive beach-side gig will offer the chance to dance on the sand, grab dinner under the stars and enjoy the best of live music.
A food truck market will set-up in the Cliff Road car park, with roving entertainers and circus artists bringing our iconic beach to life.
Wollongong City Lord Mayor Councillor Gordon Bradbery AM said that accessibility is a big focus of Spin Fest.
“Most of Council’s Spin Fest program is free to attend and we want to see community members make the most of this exciting celebration and join the fun during the 2022 UCI Road World Championships,” Cr Bradbery said.
“We’re proud to share that the Beach Party is an accessible event. There will be an Auslan interpreter on stage who has experience with interpreting concerts, and we will also be providing a small pre-booked mobility viewing area and accessible parking for those who need it.”
“This is our first trip to Wollongong! We’ve never played there before, and we are really looking forward to bringing our music to your city and seeing you all at the Spin Fest Beach Party!” said Electric Fields.

“One of the best-loved features of our city is our beautiful beaches and coastal areas. That’s why we think North Beach will make a truly stunning location for a night out in Wollongong,” Cr Bradbery said.
“Spin Fest is our chance to enjoy our city and what it has to offer during the 2022 UCI Road World Championships. It’s a once in a lifetime event and it’s our chance to celebrate our city and unique community.
“The 2022 UCI Road World Championships is an Olympic-scale event that’s also part of the NSW State Government’s 10 World Cups in 10 years initiative. It’s a huge thing for our city and will have an exciting flow-on effect as it’s not just about bikes.
“There really will be something to interest everyone in the Spin Fest program. I highly encourage everyone to save the date for the Beach Party and browse our Spin Fest program so that you can start planning for a fun and exciting September!”
