Save the Date, WAMFest Returns this November!

Screen Shot 2018-06-13 at 11.36.42 AMAttracting an impressive 40,000 people, WAMFest 2017 blew the record books wide open. The expanded and reimagined festival brought 57 iconic local venues and public spaces to life over two weekends; with live music events running throughout regional WA and Perth-metro areas.

New festival coordinators Mark Neal and Simon ‘Skinny’ O’Leary took on dual programming roles and as a result substantially increased the number of local acts involved. A whopping 304 local acts (representing 1,145 musicians) showcased their talent at last year’s WAMFest Live events, and this year we hope to see even more.

Alongside WAMCon Coordinator Claire Hodgson and WAMAwards Coordinator Kate Branson, the ambitious festival producing pair are just as committed to creating opportunities for West Australian artists as ever. While we can’t reveal too much just yet, WAMFest 2018 is shaping up to be the biggest yet so better save these dates now!
