15 Sep



In an Australian Festival first, WAMFest presented by Drug Aware (more info here) is putting the festival into the hands of the punters by partnering with Parlour to bring you this year’s epic closing party, Sunday Best, on Sunday 6 November 2016. Described by The Sydney Morning Herald as “The Airbnb of live music”, Parlour provides a unique online platform to put artists in touch with live music lovers willing to host an event in their own home.

Whether you’re an artist, industry professional or a fan, this is YOUR chance to create your very own #WAMFest adventure, becoming a key contributor to celebrating WA music and helping make festival history! But hurry, applications close Wednesday 12 October, 11:59pm.

Wherever you live in WA, if you have acts you love in your community and want them to play at your place, then sign up to host a party with Parlour to have them play at your house, creating your very own WAMFest gig. Artists who have already signed up to Parlour already include acts such as Gina Williams and Guy Ghouse, Timothy Nelson, Lights of Berlin, Jacob Diamond, Scalphunter, Bri Clark, Selekt Few, Teisha, LYTS, Death and a Cure and Riley Pearce, and the list is expanding as quick as acts apply…
