WAMFest

Following on from the record-breaking success of last year’s multi-day music event, we’re excited to step things up again as we reveal more on the shape of this year’s WAMFest presented by Act-Belong-Commit and welcome the first 32 acts showcasing at WAMFest Live Friday.

This year’s WAMFest Live Friday promises a completely FREE live music program all hosted in the City of Perth. With 10+ stages all flowing off the main Murray Street strip, it will be easier than ever for punters and industry figures to float between each of the thoughtfully curated showcases and explore all of the incredible live music on show.

Amplifier Capitol will be a major port for the evening, with WAMFest acts taking over every inch of the indoor-outdoor multi-level music haunt. Set across four stages, you’ll find a selection of WA’s finest alternative, grunge, punk and indie-rock from must-see acts such as Bolt Gun, Skullcave, Spacey Jane, and Sly Withers, alongside soul soothing sets from buzzworthy soloists like Helen Shanahan and Tanaya Harper.

A dive down to The Sewing Room will reveal a mix of indie-folk and raucous rock from the likes of The Wilds, Ryan Beno, Noah Dillon, and The Tommyhawks. Or soak up neo soul vibes from acts such as Ruby May and Georgia Reed at The Laneway Lounge.

Rubix Bar, The Belgium Beer Café and Wesley Church will have you covered on all things blues, country, acoustic and gospel, with more acts and venues to be revealed in the coming months!

WAMFest Co-coordinator Simon “Skinny” O’Leary said, “We’re really happy to be presenting a completely free WAMFest Live program this year, and look forward to showcasing some of the best venues and live acts in Australia.”
