WAM are excited to kick off the return of Perth Theatre Trust and RTRFM‘s free, all-ages 8-week concert The Courtyard Club in spectacular WAMFest fashion.
The series opens on Friday 3 November with six hours of Perth’s finest indie rock, punk, folk and avant-pop as a part of WAMFest presented by Drug Aware Live Friday showcases. Kicking off at 4:00pm, catch a special DJ set from a WAM Hall of Famer and live sets from Airline Food, Nerve Quakes, Spring Peaks, Simone and Girlfunkle and Verge Collection at the State Theatre Centre and live on RTRFM. Presented by local music program Homegrown, catch some of Perth’s finest all in one place.
Taking you through November and December RTRFM will be providing your Friday afternoon soundtrack from 5pm for live radio, live music and RTRFM DJ’s. Alongside the WAM Festival hear from the jazz infused Fat Sparrow, Australian troubadour and story teller Peter Bibby, rockabilly masters Catzilla, ambient noise makers Erasers, hip hop super group Premiss, purveyor of groove Charlie Bucket Band and Fremantle rhythm makers Bambuseae Rhythm Section.

The Courtyard Club has become the perfect place to start your weekend with friends while experiencing live radio and local music for free.
