WAM have shared the artists set to play at WAMFest Live Saturday this year. The event will be presented by Drug Aware, and with 14,500 people attending last years Fest, this year is set to be even bigger.
The name of the event has been changed from Saturday Spectacular, but that doesn’t mean that the day will be any less spectacular, with over 125 West Australian acts set to perform across over 19 venues and entry will still be free!
With 326 artists applying to be apart of the festival, WAM have put together a mix of gold-certified acts and future favourites for this year’s festival, including Boat Show, Stella Donnelly, Ziggy Ramo, The Money War, Rag n’ Bone, Lucy Peach, Sydnee Carter, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets, The Southern River Band, Old Blood, Tobacco Rat and FOAM.
The Block Party will also be upgrading to The Lot Party, turning the space adjacent to Yagan Square into a two stage space.
Acts will also be playing in venues all across the city, again taking over Amplifier and Capitol, as well as holding shows in new venues Tetsuo NC, The Sewing Room, The Laneway Lounge and The Globe. Some staple WAMFest venues will also be back, including Jack Rabbit Slims, The Bird, Universal Bar, The Mustang Bar, The Boston, The Moon Cafe, Badlands, Hen House Live and The Court.
WAMFest will also cater to under 18’s with all ages stages at the Perth Cultural Centre Wetlands and Forrest Place, as well as having an all ages area at the Lot Party. Wesley Church will also be catering to those of all ages.
