Just when you thought WAMFest presented by Drug Aware couldn’t get any bigger, along comes the biggest ever Live Friday Showcases program… Introducing another 90+ acts joining the festivities, showcasing at 17 events, targeting particular niches, audiences or themes. These artists join the 130+ artists across 20 venues already announced for WAMFest Live Saturday, as well as the massive Regional Showcases and more!
It was almost a decade ago that WAMFest (or the WAMis, as the festival was called then) last seriously spread the love out in the regions. With the skyrocketing popularity of WAM’s projects such as ‘Sounds Of’ compilation recording series and Regional Touring Circuits in recent years, we’re excited to announce WAMFest presented by Drug Aware is expanding to celebrate some of the incredible local talent found in regional WA the week before the metro festivities kick off.
Whilst record-breaking attendances saw over 14,500 music lovers filling WA venues last year, the 2017 edition of WAMFest presented by Drug Aware promises to be an even bigger and bolder celebration of why WA is producing some of the hottest musical talent in the world, with thanks also to major partners City of Perth and Lotterywest. Who will be the next Tame Impala, Pond, Ta-ku or Troye Sivan? It’s time to discover them at WAMFest Live, and through our new website – www.wamfest.com.au
