WAMFest presented by Act-Belong-Commit and proudly supported by the City of Perth is back to prove the future of WA music is brighter and bolder than ever, with hundreds of local acts set to impress crowds this November across a series of FREE live music events.

Having just revealed the first 32 local acts kicking off festivities as part of WAMFest Live Friday’s showcases in the City of Perth, WAM are proud to welcome another 116 ground-breaking WA artists to the bill as we unveil more on WAMFest Live Saturday’s electrifying program of live music taking over 17+ stages throughout Northbridge.

The latest lineup unearths plenty of standout talent, from recent BIGSOUND hits like Kaitlin Keegan, Demon Days, T$OKO and Bri Clark; to WAM Song of the Year 2018 winners J.F.K, Feels, Figurehead and Farraday’s Cage; and stacks more exciting West Australian artists, bands, and producers from every genre revealed below.

This year’s WAMFest Live Saturday schedule will see Northbridge oozing music from every orifice, with traditional live music venues and multiple outdoor stages all hosting free live showcases throughout the day and late into the night.

The much-loved Lot Party is sure to draw big crowds, with 24 acts performing across two stages at the outdoor mini-fest set up at Lot 10 South, Northbridge. Come down early Saturday arvo for WAM’s Regional Showcase, featuring not-to-be-missed acts like the Tapping Stickz, MissGenius and Grand Casual fresh from WAM’s Goldfields-Esperance Touring Circuit. Then stick around for big sets from the likes of The Money War, Odette Mercy & Her Soul Atomics, Davey Craddock, Hyclass, Axe Girl, Priscilla, Wooly Mammoth, Big Orange, Jamilla, Mal de Mer and heaps more!

Just around the corner you can chill out to sets from solo performers in the Yagan Square Auditorium or head to the Perth Cultural Centre Amphitheatre to soak up feel-good vibes from the likes of Your Girl Pho, Almond Soy, The Hunting Birds and more. With both these outdoor stages open to punters of all ages.

If venues are more your vibe, there are plenty opening their doors for carefully curated WAMFest Live showcases, including The Bird, Nevermind Small Club, Universal Bar, The Mustang Bar, The Boston, Badlands Bar, Paper Mountain, The Court, The Brass Monkey and more to be announced.

WAMFest Live Co-coordinator Mark Neal said, “This year’s WAMFest Live lineup is a true testament to the phenomenal talent growing in WA. We were absolutely blown away by the quality of applications this year and can’t wait for punters to uncover more of the musical gems hiding in our own backyard.”

With more than 25,000 predicted to attend, this is your chance to be part of the biggest local music event of the year!
