WAM champions all forms and levels of WA music, locally, nationally and internationally.

A unified, thriving WA music community that is both loved and revered

To foster, develop and elevate the value of original WA music

Passionately committed to championing Western Australia’s thriving music industry since 1987, WAM (West Australian Music) is the peak music body responsible for supporting, nurturing and growing all forms of contemporary music in WA.

We believe in the industry and the individuals who make the music, listen to it and bring it to life. We’re for the amateurs, the professionals and everyone in between. We’re not selective of genres, nor are we elitist, bureaucratic or remote. Instead, through fusing meaningful connections, providing suitable opportunities and embracing all who wish to play, listen and partake, we’re creating a thriving music industry that’s a testament to the talent and passion within it.
