Triple J's Bridget Hustwaite Presents Her Top Five Acts Not To Miss at WAMFest 2022

Ahead of her appearance at WAMCon and the triple j curated party at WAMFest, the Good Nights presenter serves up some tasty picks

As we head full-steam into WAMCon and WAMfest 2022, a diverse array of music industry professionals will descend on Boorloo, bringing a wealth of knowledge and passion along with them.

This includes a few delegates from triple j, ahead of the triple j WAMFest gig going down from 6pm on Saturday, November 5 at the James Street Amphitheatre in the Perth Cultural Centre, featuring the likes of Adrian Dzuvke, Alter Boy, Dulcie and more. 

As well as moderating the WAMCon panel Stories from The Road, triple j Good Nights presenter Bridget Hustwaite will also be hosting the triple j WAMfest gig, no doubt in between trying to catch a stack of other amazing W.A. music talent on display all over the city this Saturday.

To get us even more amped for the festivities, Bridget gave us her top 5 picks to catch - get to know!


I’ve been eagerly following Dulcie since the jazzy stylings of their 2019 debut ‘Fall’ and have loved seeing how they’ve expanded their pop chops with their recent releases. Plus, these girls are stylish as hell!

South Summit:

These guys have been sounding like absolute rockstars on the radio and I’m really keen to hear how their soaring anthems translate to the stage in front of an adoring hometown crowd!

Alter Boy:

Our mornings girl Lucy Smith has been raving about the star quality musicianship of this band since catching them live at VIVID a few months ago and particularly the inclusive nature with Auslan interpreters alongside frequency and vibration. If Lucy tells you, it’s a non-miss, you obey!


Abbe May:

A long time celebrated local act, the bluesy swag of Abbe is always a guaranteed good time, and this will be a huge set for her following her recent WAM Awards win.

Joan & The Giants:

I’ve had ‘Slow Motion’ on repeat this year and I’m definitely ready to feel all the feels with Joan & The Giants who have established themselves as a powerfully emotive lice act who could silence any room!
