Located in a magnificent 19th century building on Bathers Beach, Kidogo Arthouse hosts a wide array of unique music and art experiences. Kidogo – meaning “little” in Swahili – is a small venue with powerful historical significance and a grand, palpable soul that touches everyone who visits the building.
MUSIC EXPERIENCES AT KIDOGO
Kidogo Arthouse events are created for artists, by artists and create increasingly rare opportunity for musicians to truly connect with their audience. While many of the events include a licensed bar and food experiences, the service areas are always kept separate from the performance area to minimize distractions and allow the musicians and patrons to fully immerse themselves in the live music experience. The venue is known to have the best listening audience in Western Australia.
“We pride ourselves in giving our small audiences and the artist, an unforgettable experience that cannot be replicated in bigger spaces or in more commercial venues. It is a way for even the most recognised stadium touring artists to have that raw, intimate connection with their audience, if they choose to.”
The building is a majestic 1884 heritage listed limestone construction with a beautiful courtyard and deck overlooking Bathers Beach. The limestone gallery has some of the best acoustics in WA with the added bonus of the sound of the waves crashing over bathers beach just outside.
The space is often transformed to adapt the look and feel of the season’s events, adding variety to the existing atmosphere of the building. The venue has long been a favourite amongst local artists and is on its way becoming an icon of the WA music scene, with an increasing number of coveted international and local musicians performing at the venue.
