The inaugural WA Music Week, held in March 2021, was a triumphant success on all fronts! Engaged audiences, record numbers of artists showcased, and significant on-flowing commercial and employment benefits for the WA music community and its supporting industries. Our small team, together with contracted event staff and your support, delivered one of the biggest and most ambitious musical programs for quite some time.
Arts Minister David Templeman has been emphatically supportive of WAM and the staging of WA Music Week, citing its cultural importance as one of the key West Australian arts events on the WA calendar.
WAM is excited to deliver the next iteration of WA Music Week in March 2022. With the festival season opening with Fringe and transitioning into Perth Festival, we will round out the end of summer with WA’s best loved local live music event program.
