Sentry was the first to say hello to Bunbury playing his set on Saturday before Illy popped in the following night to dish out a second dose of hip-hop indulgence for local fans.

Mantra was the first support act off the bat for Sentry and was able to set the tone.

Grey Ghost followed before Sentry came out and unleashed with favourites like Campfire, Dear Science and Room for Rent.

Sentry was able to lift the spirits of many depressed Fremantle Dockers’ fans before calling it a night.

The next night began with a bit of confusion among the fans with Illy announcing over Facebook that the night would be starting early as the Prince of Wales Hotel needed to close by 10pm.

Elemont was first up followed by Allday and Tuka and even though some fans may have missed a couple of acts, nearly all had turned up to watch Illy blast through the speakers and make the crowd bounce with a hand movement.

Illy threw in an unusual array of songs which included old hits like The Chase, Guess I Could and It Can Wait along with songs off the new album like On and On and Youngbloods. Illy also included his Friday Flip version of Avicii’s song Levels.

The crowd was so pleased that by the end of the set they were demanding an encore in which Illy came back to the stage with Tuka, Allday, Elemont and Bam Bam and performed a song which they made specifically for the On and On tour, followed by Illy’s hit song Pictures.

The hip-hop gigs don’t stop there though. Horrorshow will be playing a set tomorrow night at the Prince of Wales Hotel while popular duo Spit Syndicate will touch down in Bunbury on October 19.
