WAM Wheatbelt Touring Circuit dates - October 2016

Posted on: Tuesday, 4 October 2016 at 12:00:00 AM

West Australian Music's (WAM) 2016 Wheatbelt Touring Circuit continues during October with the next installment being a special Music Feedback Tour Edition happening during Mental Health Week.

It also boosts the number of acts being showcased, teaming up with partners Narrogin Musicians Association and their annual event, Big Bash Music Festival. Now seeing 25 acts performing on this fourth tour in the series, there will also be FREE Music Feedback CDs at all three massive shows!

In partnership with RAC, and with support from the Department of Culture and the Arts, Royalties For Regions and Country Arts WA, the Wheatbelt Touring Circuit will be headlined by WAM Song Of The Year-nominee and respected indie/rock/roots band The TommyHawks for this Music Feedback Tour edition. They’ll be performing on all dates with Nannup indie/rock upstarts and recent single launchers, Leoh. October’s Tour 4 will roll in into Northam on Friday 14 at The Riverside Hotel; on Saturday 15 at Narrogin Musicians Association’s Big Bash Music Festival at The Narrogin Show; and finish Sunday 16 October at the Wagin District Club.

A focal point of the program is the integration of road safety messaging into the tours, talking to people about the choices they make before getting behind the wheel or into a vehicle at a critical time – when they are enjoying music in licensed premises. 

WAM has taken this idea one step further in 2016-17 by engaging a team of Wheatbelt WAMbassadors from across the region to be advocates for WAM in the Wheatbelt, and actively talk about road safety at gigs, and at other appropriate opportunities.
