Massive thanks and respect to local music lovers X-Press Mag, who released their final print issue today. Finishing with a bang, the “W.A. To Go” headline couldn’t have said it better, the WAM-curated State Of The Art music festival taking front cover honours on the final edition. It also featured interviews with some of the 30 acts on the #SOTAFest line-up, including Jebediah, Koi Child, Verge Collection, Morgan Bain, Mathas, Joel Barker, Riley Pearce and The Tommyhawks.

As of today, print will be placed on the back burner, though expect some proposed special edition print publications to be introduced on a seasonal basis. From everyone at WAM, we want to thank X-Press for their incredible print coverage over our existence, which has been roughly the same three decade lifetime as X-Press Mag’s!

While it’s sad to say goodbye to print, we’re now looking forward to avoiding dirty fingers and saving a few trees with the launch of their new online digital app. An exciting revamped X-Press App will be relaunched Wednesday 25 May in place of print, this time as a once-only App Store download showcasing a new and improved dynamic, live feed-based product with social media integration. Xpressmag.com.au and themusic.com.au alliance will also continue offering some of the most powerful and quality online coverage on WA music.

We look forward to this new digital future of them championing WA music. xx
