LESS THAN 2 WEEKS TO GO!
2021 SONG OF THE YEAR PRESENTED BY ACT BELONG COMMIT

The countdown is on with the WAM Song of the Year 2021 Awards Party presented by Act Belong Commit set for just under two weeks away! Who do you think will take out the grand prize?

Last year we held our very first Virtual Awards Party, so we’re excited to bring our nominees, music fans, and the WA music community back to Freo.Social! Taking place on Wednesday 30 June, we’ve got a HUGE night planned. Hosted by the magnificent MC duo Blake Williams and Odette Mercy, we’ll be treated to live performances from SOTY Nominees Chaos DivineWasteland with Sydnee CarterDetour and special guests Warralgurniya travelling from the Upper Gascoyne. Plus RTRFM’s Homegrown DJs will be spinning your favourite WA tunes throughout the night.

There’s still a handful of tickets left if you’d like to join the party, and in the interim, make sure to check out the Nominee Spotify Playlist for all the songs in the running!
