WAMAwards 2019 Public Voting: Most Popular Music Event

WAMAwards 2019 Public Voting: Most Popular Music Event

Vote for this year's most popular West Australian music event now!

Every year, as a part of the annual WAMFest and WAMCon celebrations, the WAMAwards reward and honour the best of West Australia's flourishing music scene. This year, one defined by the international domination of WA-raised musicians like Stella Donnelly and Carla Geneve, the WAMAwards represent something bigger: a chance to recognise those who have helped push WA music not just within the state, but on a larger national scale and then internationally too, whether it be those in-front of the cameras familiar to most, or those working behind-the-scenes to make sure it happens. 

While many of the categories are voted by a collection of industry members, this year sees the return of the WAMAwards public voting, which makes a comeback - presented by Pilerats, mind you - to give the power to the people in a handful of the ceremony's most acclaimed awards. This year, public voting is open for five awards: Most Popular Live Act, Most Popular New Act, Most Popular Venue and the all-new Most Popular Act, a winner-of-winners-type award that'll go to the act chosen to have the greatest contribution to WA Music this year. Public Award voting closes at 11.59PM on Thursday, October 10th.

Here, you can vote for the 2019 WAMAwards' Most Popular Music Event category, featuring:

Blues at Bridgetown
Fairbridge Festival
Falls Festival
Nannup Music Festival
Perth International Arts Festival
RTRFM’s In The Pines
State Of The Art Festival

This year's nominees: 

Blues at Bridgetown

In 1996, after only three years, Blues at Bridgetown was leading the way not only in terms of showcasing blues music and being one of the first blues festivals in Australia, but shutting down regional main streets was not commonplace and having any festival performances broadcast Australia-wide let alone internationally was unheard of. It’s not so common today either. Blues at Bridgetown truly established themselves as cutting edge and it all laid the foundation for today – the event is still going strong, showcases some the best musicians in the world alongside amazing up-and-coming talent and has become a significant contributor to the economic growth and vitality of Bridgetown and the Warren-Blackwood district.

Fairbridge Festival

Fairbridge Festival is Western Australia’s most popular family camping festival. This friendly celebration of folk, roots, blues, acoustic, Celtic, a capella and world music takes place annually in April, in the traffic-free, self-contained bushland site of Fairbridge Village on the South West Highway, 5 km north of Pinjarra and 100 km south of Perth’s outlying south-eastern suburbs…

Falls Festival

Every summer since 1993, The Falls Music & Arts Festival has been at the forefront of the east coast Australian festival scene, defining the real different between a mere music festival and a true festival experience. Capturing the essence of the Australian summer spirit, Falls embraces diversity, sustainability and community within a contemporary music event like no other. Transcending the common festival model, taking the time to curate a sophisticated experience that properly respects and honors time, people and place.

Nannup Music Festival

Nannup is a small, historic timber town in the centre of Western Australia’s stunning Southwest, on the banks of the beautiful Blackwood River. Nannup Music Festival is held annually over the WA Labour Day long weekend, over which time the streets come alive with stalls, performances and activities. The Festival, now in its 30th year, is a community-spirited event operated by a passionate and dedicated team of Staff and Committee from the not-for-profit Nannup Music Club Inc. All profits are used for the running of the organisation, primarily the festival and its infrastructure.

Origin Fields

Bringing you a diverse line-up of the biggest acts from Australia and around the world over Two Days on New Years Eve & New Years Day!

Perth Festival

We exist to enrich life through art. Perth Festival has been disrupting and celebrating Perth and Western Australia for over 65 years. The Festival was born out of the University of Western Australia’s annual summer school entertainment nights as a ‘festival for the people’ on January 3, 1953. Since then, Perth Festival has seeded and cultivated decades of cultural growth as the oldest arts festival in the Southern Hemisphere. It is Australia’s premier curated multi-arts festival and one of the greatest in the world, known for commissioning major new works, celebrating the unique qualities of Perth and engaging diverse audiences. At Festival time in Perth, there is no other place like this on Earth. For a few weeks every glorious summer, the best artists from Western Australia and the world stand shoulder to shoulder in creative unity with the community.

RTRFM’s In The Pines

RTRFM’s Iconic local music Festival IN THE PINES is back for its 26th year at our home away from home, UWA Somerville Auditorium.

State of the Art Festival

On Monday 4 June EQ transformed into SOTA, which had an epic Western Australian line-up designed for music lovers of all ages – co-presented by WAM. Thousands came down for the banging tunes from some of WA’s biggest and best homegrown talent.
