BASSENDEAN residents will enjoy a musical showcase as part of a new partnership with West Australian Music (WAM).

The WAMFest Live Sunday event at BIC Reserve on November 5 is set to feature a stellar musical line-up including funk-soul songstress Ruby May and her 7-piece band, electro hip-hop group The Brow, crowd favourites Ah Trees and local solo beat-boxer Sam Perry.

Perry said he was happy to be playing in his home town.

“I’m so excited to be back home playing shows in Perth again,” he said.

“Festivals like WAMFest means so much to the local musicians doing the hard yards for all these years.

“I can’t wait to play a part in it”.

Bassendean chief executive Bob Jarvis said he was excited to have the festival come to the Town.

“Building on the Town’s reputation of delivery quality cultural events that are inclusive for all people to attend, WAMFest Live Sunday is part of an exciting new partnership between the Town and WAM,” he said.

“The Town and WAM specifically curated this eclectic line up from a shortlist of over 300 acts who submitted to showcase in WA’s largest celebration of original music.

“It is a family friendly event will feature an array of free kids’ activities, including creative re-use activities from REmida and creative physical challenges from the crew at Circus Challenge.”

The music event will also feature food trucks and Mr Jarvis encouraged those attending to embrace the sunshine and walk or ride to the event and take advantage of the Town’s bike valet.

The WAMFest Live kicks off at 2pm, for more information visit www.bassendean.wa.gov.au/events.
