WHEATBELT TOURING CIRCUIT: Tour 7

 

The next edition of WAM’s Wheatbelt Touring Circuit will feature an all-star Wheatbelt artists line-up. We’re excited to showcase some of the finest local musicians from the Wheatbelt, as well as include a number of Wheatbelt WAMbassadors. The WAMbassadors initiative recently saw a video featuring the WAMbassadors receiving over 20,000 views for a video with them promoting road safety, a collaborative production with partners RAC. This tour will celebrate the continuing success of this program, as well as the immense and diverse talent pool found in the region.
 

Continuing our partnership with RAC, and with support from the Department of Culture and the Arts, Royalties For Regions and Country Arts WA, WAM’s Wheatbelt Touring Circuit Tour 7 will roll into Wagin on Friday 10 March, Wyalkachem Saturday 11 and finishing in Narrogin for a family-friendly frolic in the park on Sunday 12 March.
