Offering highly specialised, ongoing services and support to the West Australian music industry.

Passionately committed to championing Western Australian music since 1987, WAM is the peak industry body responsible for supporting, nurturing and growing all forms, genres and levels of original contemporary music in WA.

Western Australia already has an established reputation for producing exceptional and unique world-class contemporary music artists. WAM harnesses this potential by creating increased opportunities for WA contemporary music to be created and consumed. WAM is an advocate for the cultural, economic and social benefits of a supported music scene, with our long-term goal being for contemporary music to be recognised as a leading cultural identifier for Western Australia. Our diverse programs, events and actions are all committed to doing this.
