WAMFest Live is ready to go big in 2018 with the announcement of the first 32 artists on their Friday night live music showcase, taking place in Perth on the 2nd of November.

The mini-festival takes place across multiple stages and venues (all free entry, of course), as part of the greater WAMFest celebrations, which stretch from October 31 – November 4.

Perth is set to take off with WAMFest’s live Friday, a one-day showcase of the very best emerging music Western Australia has to offer.

The event will take over the Murray Street strip in the City of Perth, with over 10 stages sharing the whopper music lineup between them. Amplifier Capitol will play a strong hand in the hosting duties, packing the multi-level venue with nothing but WAMFest.

The lineup features the brightest new talent WA has on offer, from Needle In The Hay winners Spacey Jane, to neo-soul guru Ruby May or the delicious indie punk of Sly Withers.

More acts are yet to be announced, as is a second free showcase taking place in Northbridge on Saturday November 3. Keep an ear to the ground for that news, and plenty more to come for WAMFest 2018.

For now though, check out the first 32 acts on the lineup.
