In case you missed the news, WA Music (WAM) just announced their massive 2021 program for the exciting return of their flagship celebration, WAMFest.
After understandably postponing in November last year, the iconic and long-running event will feature over 160 of WA’s exciting contemporary artists taking over dozens of venues across the city of Perth and Northbridge on the weekend of March 26-27.
In addition to the big dance, the weekend before (March 19 and 20) HBF Stadium in Mount Claremont will be getting in on the fun with two huge concert events helping to kick off the action-packed WA Music Week, called Hear & Now.
Featuring indoor and outdoor stages, Friday 19 March will play host to WA heavyweights POND, San Cisco and Stella Donnelly, with rising hip hop star Adrian Dzvuke rounding out the bill on main.
Outside the stadium you’ll sets from dream-folk duo Oceanique, acclaimed jazz singer Lois Olney, award-winning folk singer/songwriter Helen Shanahan and country/blues performer Darcy Hay.
Then on Saturday 20th it’s four of WA’s most promising young acts in The Struggling Kings, Dulcie, The Southern River Band and recent triple j Hottest 100 runners up Spacey Jane taking to the main stage.
While outside you’ll hear Steve Hensby, The Little Lord Street Band, Queency and Siobhan Cotchin, all 2020 WAMAward nominees in their own right.
The WAMFest weekend and Hear & Now will be a wonderful celebration of WA musicians after one of their must tumultuous years on record, and a prime opportunity for the music-going public to get around the fantastic talent in this State.
Concerts on both nights run from 6-11pm, and tickets go on sale 9am Tuesday 2 March via ticketmaster.com.au.
