2017 PERFORMERS

Join the stars of DreamWorks Trolls, Poppy and Branch at the Strathfield Spring Festival! Poppy with a song in her heart, she knows life is all about cupcakes and rainbows and Branch, who is very cautious and careful, but is always ready for anything – except Poppy’s personality. Poppy and Branch have their up’s and downs but always make friends and understand each other in the end! Hosts Rosie and Daisy audition for a talent quest and with the help of Poppy and Branch, are able to overcome their fear of stage fright and sing and dance their way into the grand final.

Lah-Lah is all about introducing children and their families to music and musical instruments through fun and entertainment. From TV shows on ABC Kids, CBeebies, and the Seven Network to sell-out live concerts, Lah-Lah’s Big Live Band continues to delight audiences across Australia and always gets the whole family up and singing!

After Lah-Lah’s performance there is a Meet and Greet with Mister Saxophone, Squeezy Sneezy the piano accordion, Tom Tom on drums, Buzz the Bandleader, Lola the Dancing Double Bass and the ever loveable Lah-Lah (a former opera singer and early childhood teacher!)

You may remember Jakob Delgado, Ethan Karpathy and Chris Lanzon from the seventh season of The X Factor Australia as they were being mentored by Guy Sebastian. The group impressed Australian audiences with their debut performance of Taylor Swift’s “Style” at the 2015 X-Factor audition, which attracted over two million views and they went on to finish eighth in the competition.

Following the X-Factor series, In Stereo grew their followers significantly via weekly episodes of “The In Stereo Show”, a web series written and filmed by the boys that reached over 350,000 fans each week.

They were recently nominated for Nickelodeon’s Kid’s Choice Awards 2017 and won Aussie/Kiwi Favourite Squad earning them a Nickelodeon Blimp.

They have since released two Eps in 2016 titled “She’s Rock n Roll”, “The Speed of Sound” and their third in 2017 “Day In, Day Out” which debuted at number 1 on the Australian iTunes Pop Charts

Sean Murphy is no stranger to crafting tasty comedy that educates and entertains as he has rocked stages from Sydney to Scotland. Some notable performances under his belt include being part of “Kid’s Party Confidential” which toured to the Melbourne Comedy Festival, Edinburgh Fringe, New Zealand and Singapore; ongoing presenter and performer at children’s events at the Sydney Opera House and is scheduled to undertake a 2 year world tour of “Ghost Jam” with leading musician Sophie Unsen.

Sean Murphy will delight children throughout the day at the Spring Festival, as well as hosting the Main Stage as MC.

Dance @ Nikki Webster is the co-creation of Scott and Nikki Webster, which was established in 2008. It is Australia’s premier performing arts studio based in Leichhardt, Minchinbury and Erina, offering classes in all styles of dance and performance. With the first-hand experience that both Nikki and Scott bring to the studio, they have a passion and belief in watching their students grow and achieve.

Showcasing Australia’s top Freestyle Trial Riders, Flair’s Show is a dynamic performance displaying Trial motorcycles and bicycles being pushed to their limits. Performing every weekend and training throughout the week keeps Flair’s riders at their peak and has the crowd on the edge of their seats at each show, as they watch the riders pull off some of the biggest tricks ever attempted on trial motorcycles.

Stunts such as 180s, 360s, transfers, stalls and even backflips are performed just metres from the crowd, making it by far the top Freestyle Trial Show in Australia.

Flair Action Sports have performed at “Australia’s Got Talent”, Singapore Formula 1 Grand Prix, Melbourne Formula 1 Grand Prix, Monster Jam (USA) and the Sydney Royal Easter Show.
