Let’s help WA acts fly high in the triple j’s 2016 Hottest 100!

15 Dec

After a sadly WA-light triple j Hottest 100 in 2014, 2015’s poll made us happy via a heap of WA acts featuring. With voting now officially open for the 2016 poll, here at WAM HQ we’re keen for the recognition of great WA music to keep trending upwards. As such, to jog your memory before voting, here’s a few ideas inspired by the WAMAwards nominees and winners to help ensure WA acts feature highly in the Hot100;
