WAMFest Regional Showcase

WAMFest Regional Showcase

Country Arts WA

As part of #WAMFest presented by Drug Aware, it’s time to celebrate some of the incredible local talent found in regional WA the week before the metro festivities kick off.

It was almost a decade ago that WAMFest (or the WAMis, as the festival was called then) last seriously spread the love out in the regions. With the skyrocketing popularity of WAM’s projects such as ‘Sounds Of’ compilation recording series and Regional Touring Circuits in recent years, we’re excited to announce WAMFest presented by Drug Aware is expanding to celebrate some of the incredible local talent found in regional WA the week before the metro festivities kick off.

WA’s biggest local festival will see six shows taking place in regional WA, with showcases held in Margaret River, Dunsborough, Bunbury, Merredin, Mandurah and Albany. Both Albany and Dunsborough will host Mini-WAMCons, with WAMFest Live Coordinators and ex-regional musos Mark Neal and Skinny O’Leary sharing music industry knowledge at free workshops.

To top it off, 21 regional acts – representing Peel, Great Southern, Wheatbelt, Kimberely and South West regions – will be showcased to metro audiences, with the WAMFest Live Closing Party / Regional Showcase helping close WAMFest on Sunday 5 November with a free, four-stage party held between The Railway Hotel and the Swan Hotel.
