Pond, San Cisco, Spacey Jane + more: Meet your Hear & Now concert line-up

The two-day concert series will kick off WA Music Week this March, featuring some of the biggest WA acts there is.

We already know that WA Music Week is going to be somewhat of a blur for West Australian music lovers, with the week-long celebration of music - from March 19th right through to March 28th - already featuring some of the West Australian music calendar's biggest events in WAMFest and WAMCon. Add on a series of grant-supported live shows being announced throughout the week (like this one featuring Sly Withers right here), and the week is quickly being packed to the rafters with musical talent.

Now, we've got another thing to add to the mix, with the just-announced Hear & Now concert series launching the whole thing with a pair of high-capacity, HBF Stadium shows scheduled for March 19th and March 20th. Supported by the WA State Government, the event will capture some of West Australia's biggest artists together with some of its brightest newcomers; the two events highlighting the talent of Perth's music space regardless of their sound.

The first show on Friday, March 19th will feature alt-rock heavyweights POND and dance-pop favourites San Cisco on headline duties, with Stella Donnelly and Adrian Dzvuke stepping up to support. These sets will be happening inside the stadium, while on a smaller outside stage, dream-folk duo Oceanique, jazz singer Lois Olney, folk singer Helen Shanahan and country performer Darcy Hay will be rounding out the lineup.

The second show the day after - March 20th - will have the same set-up, with Spacey Jane headlining alongside The Southern River Band, Dulcie and The Struggling Kings. On the outside stage, Steve Hensby, The Little Lord Street Band, Queency and Pilerats one to watch in 2021 star Siobhan Cotchin will be performing stripped-back sets, welcoming some brilliant acoustic talent in the process of doing so.

Tickets to the shows go on sale March 2nd via Ticketmaster, and are only $44 (plus booking fees) a pop. You can find a bit more information here, and the full line-up below:
