WAMFEST 1st round acts revealed

is back for 2018 with their Live Friday promising 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 curated showcases and explore all of the local 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, FOAM, 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.

Now in its 25th year, WAMFest is the country’s biggest celebration of emerging West Australian artists, bands and producers. The WAMFest Live component will see hundreds of WA artists takeover venues and outdoor stages for a series of FREE live music events in Perth City on Friday, November 2 and Northbridge on Saturday, November 3, with more events kicking off in regional WA and Perth suburbs in the weeks before and after still to be announced.
