Dancing and singing superstar TIMOMATIC will headline Fairfield City Council’s 2016 Cabramatta Moon Festival on Sunday 04 September.

The festival, one of Sydney’s largest and brightest authentic South East Asian cultural celebrations, continues to draw in some of Australia’s best talent.

Mayor of Fairfield City Frank Carbone said TIMOMATIC would "Set It Off” with his hits and electrify the crowds with a high energy show.

“It is with great excitement that I announce TIMOMATIC as this year’s headline act and, no doubt, audiences will be wowed when he takes the stage and performs some of his chart topping hits like Parachute and Waterfalls,” Mayor Carbone said.

TIMOMATIC, whose real name is Tim Omaji, is a Nigerian-born Australian singer, songwriter and dancer who first gained recognition on Australia’s popular television programs So you think you can Dance and Australia’s Got Talent.

Since his television debut, TIMOMATIC has continued to shine, releasing single hits including Set It Off, Parachute, and Waterfalls. In addition, he has supported international acts such as Flo Rida, Niki Minaj and Jessie J.

“Fairfield Council is also running a competition for six lucky winners to have the chance to meet TIMOMATIC with a backstage pass,” Mayor Carbone said.

“All you have to do is like the Cabramatta-Taste of Asia Facebook page and tell us in 25 words or less why you would like to meet TIMOMATIC.”

The fantastic entertainment at this year’s Moon Festival will also include special performances from Korean pop sensation Prince Mak.

“Prince Mak is an international star who grew up in Casula and hit the Korean pop scene in a big way as part of the popular boy band JJCC,” Mayor Carbone said.

“He is another fantastic example of home grown Aussie talent and we are delighted to have him perform at the 2016 Cabramatta Moon Festival.”
