The Beautiful Girls

The Busselton Jetty Swim has again partnered with the City of Busselton Youth Services to present the finals of the Battle of the Bands competition, and provide talented young performers with the opportunity to play on the big stage. 
 
These amazing acts never disappoint and who knows, maybe one of these acts will headline the concert in years to come!
