About the WAMAwards

WA's music industry night of nights, the WAMAwards - or WAMis, as they're often referred to - is where the finest local talent is awarded and celebrated.

Each year industry panels nominate and vote across 30+ categories to uncover the very best WA music has to offer. WA's thriving music community also has their say, with public voting available across five award categories.

This year's winners will be revealed Thursday 1 November at the annual WAMAwards, which this year debuts at the swanky Grand Ballroom of the Hyatt Regency Hotel Perth. With the WAMi’s prestigious new home boasting luxe-vibes and first-class facilities, this year’s high-quality affair will be a true reflection of the immense talent recognised throughout the awards. Guests are encouraged to leave the ripped jeans at home and dial up the style for a lively evening celebrating WA music’s very best.

Limited tickets are available now via moshtix!


Adding to this night-of-nights for the Perth music community, will be live performances by Perth's iconic rock n roll royalty and Hall of Fame inductees The Stems, much loved duo Gina Williams and Guy Ghouse, seven-time WAM Award nominee Carla Geneve, the sassy and energetic stage persona that is Your Girl Pho, the adored hip hop producer and emcee Hyclass, the mesmerising jazz heroes of Gemma Farrell Quintet plus alt country Wild Westers Ralway Bell. We’re pleased to be teaming up with the sound pros at Perth Audio Visual to ensure all our local stars sound their very best on the big night.
