The West Australian Music Festival is set to return in 2014 flaunting a smorgasbord of homegrown talent from bands to speakers. Enthused after last year's event, which attracted over 15,000 people, the 2014 WAM Festival is promising its best year yet.
The 2014 WAM Festival, which includes music awards, music craft awards and now a Block Party, will kick off on 6 November and run through to 8 November. The Block Party will be new to the 2014 and will see The Love Junkies, Slumberjack, Coin Banks and more gathered in a parking lot for one of the most rambunctious gigs of the week.
As well as the Block Party, the weekend will be ushered in in style with an Opening Party that will see Mt Mountain, Usurper of Modern Medicine and more take to the stage. Acts for a heavy/punk/metal night, a hip-hop showcase and a Jazz soiree are still to be announced.
Along with a plethora of music, WAM is yet again holding its conference, bringing together some of the most knowledgeable names in the business. The head of A&R at Warner Music, Heath Bradby will be joined by BIGSOUND co-programmer Nick O'Byrne and Jordan Campbell from the Harbour Agency along with plenty of other industry experts
