Western Australia

Western Australia is renowned for punching above its weight when it comes to producing nationally and internationally recognised contemporary music talent. Through the hard work of WA’s local music makers, venue owners, dedicated local event promoters, supportive music media and forward-thinking leaders and government, WA has formed a thriving metal scene, world-famous psych community, global pool of electronic forces to be reckoned with, leading indie popsters and beyond, all forging a state reputation for diverse musical excellence. Assisting live music venues to adapt to changing markets, thrive and become standard destinations for locals and tourists alike is vital for live music in Perth. And beyond the big smoke, establishing sustainable regional and east coast touring circuits are crucial parts in conquering the tyranny of distance faced by metro and regional WA acts, turning the challenges of isolation into potential situations for unique creative inspiration.
