Hobo Johnson & The Lovemakers

Hobo Johnson & The Lovemakers


A remarkable young man with the soul of a poet, a tripwire voice and talent to burn, Hobo Johnson is a Sacramento based musician like nothing you’ve ever heard before. Surviving a tough upbringing in which he was ostracised for his technicolour personality, Johnson first started making music in his 1994 Toyota Corolla which doubled as his home at the time (hence the name). His flow is crooked and his heart lives on his sleeve but something in the elements of hip-hop, folk, slam poetry and indie that he has pooled together has led to a huge following and plenty of buzz. The NPR Tiny Desk video of his track Peach Scone has clocked up nearly 9 million views as the world tunes into to one man’s magical madness.

Falls Downtown 2019 will once again be taking over the Fremantle Oval Precinct along Parry Street and will be incorporating and reimagining historic sites, streets, carparks and buildings to delight, entertain and inspire our audiences and artists. Our unique passouts policy will also continue to retain free flowing access to all of Fremantle’s many delights during the weekend of Jan 05 and Jan 06 - Fremantle Markets, cafes, restaurants, retailers, artisans, tourist sites, the port, Bathers Beach and more.
