Carla Geneve, Great Gable, Peter Bibby + more: Meet your WAMFest 2021 line-up

Venues across Perth and Northbridge will come alive to celebrate WA music on March 27th.

WAMFest is always one of the best days in the West Australian musical calendar, especially if you're keen on discovering the next best thing to come out of the state's music space. Over the years, it's hosted almost every big-name West Australian artist early on in their careers, and the year in and out, the WAMFest lineup sounds like an extended list of which acts have been dominating the year prior (or, conversely, are bound to dominate the year ahead).

In 2020, the festival sadly had to postpone its usual November date to March 2021 due to safety restrictions in the wake of coronavirus; WAMFest this year spread across two days in Perth and Northbridge (March 26th and 27th) with talent that seems to showcase the peaks of WA music even amongst a turbulent year. 

This year, WAMFest is coming in thick with one of its best line-ups to date, regardless of what facet of West Australian music you're invested in. Reading the A-Z billing on the festival's poster (which you can suss out below) is full of acts we've championed and adored over the last twelve months: Alter Boy, BEXX, Big Orange, Carla Geneve, Mt Cleverest, Cruel Noon, Death By Denim, Dulcie, Fraeya, Ghost Care, Great Gable, Grievous Bodily Calm, Haircare, Joan & The Giants, Lo, New Talk, Nika Mo, No Nomad, Pat Chow, Peter Bibby's Dog Act, Racka Chachi, Siobhan Cotchin, Skyuka, Tanaya Harper, Tether and so on - the list never really stops.

The above list are only acts on the main day - Saturday, March 27th - of the festival too, with a tease of acts on the 26th featuring even more favourites: Adrian Dzvuke, Boox Kid, Michael Dunstan, Paige Valentine, The Little Lord Street Band and more. Add everything going on that weekend with WAMCon and the WAMAwards too, and it's quickly clear that the end of March is going to be a smorgasbord of West Australian talent, and the peaks the scene brings.

As always, WAMFest will be held across central indoor and outdoor Perth venues throughout the two days, and - again, as always - this year's WAMFest is completely free.
