Event Details

WAMCon has earned a stellar reputation for both educational excellence and A+ good times, and with this year’s conference serving up the biggest contingent of national and international speakers in its history, it’s sure to set your music career on fire!

All up this year’s conference will see 65+ speakers in total (full line-up below), with 6 international, 38 national and 25 local industry experts serving up solid gold advice across 14 panels alongside what’s sure to be a fascinating keynote from WA’s own prodigal son, Gareth Liddiard (The Drones).

With the return of 1-on-1 speed dating and radio pitching opportunities, as well as the moshtix QuayNote boat cruise (more details below) adding to the long list of exclusive extras, this year’s WAMCon pass holders will receive unprecedented value. Let’s be totally honest here, with how cheaply tickets are priced, you’d be silly not to take advantage of it all…


Access to 70+ leading music industry speakers from around Australia/world

► moshtix #QuayNote Boat Party VIP boarding pass (BALLOT for last spots open til 31 Oct!)

► Entry to ALL Friday Showcases & Sunday Best Parlour shows (subject to capacity)

► Radio pitching & 1-on-1 networking opportunities

► Tunes’n’eats at #WAMCon Salad Days & much more!


Following last year’s fully boarded success, the moshtix presented QuayNote Boat Party sets sail on Friday 4 November after  conference Day 1 finishes, with an earlybird ticket or QuayNote Ballot win the only way to secure a spot on board. If you missed out on an earlybird ticket, simply buy a WAMCon pass between now and 10am, Monday 31 October to enter the ballot. Those lucky enough to snag a spot on board will join Death Disco head honcho Anton Maz as your musical captain on the high seas. All food and beverages will also be provided at the VIP networking event of the year.


Music industry speed dating and radio listening sessions are still open, providing even more opportunities to take your music career to the next level! Get your WAMCon pass and register ASAP for one-on-one feedback from a line-up of ultra knowledgeable WAMCon music industry speakers.

With representatives from booking agencies, record labels, publishing companies, sync agencies, music media, artist management companies and more, you’re sure to find advice that’s suited to your career. Plus, there’s also unique opportunities to pitch your songs directly to decision makers from triple j, Double J, FBi, Mix 94.5 and RTRFM, receiving expert – and honest – feedback on your music.
