METRO WAMi WRAPS UP
WAM Executive Director, Paul Bodlovich commented on the 2006 Festival and what’s to come in 2007 :
" It’s been great to see the support for the WAMi Festival and WA music in general that has been evident over the course of this year’s WAMi Festival. Media coverage has been incredible, and audience numbers have been really strong right throughout the week. And they've been treated to a whole load of amazing performances which kicked off with the Flairz at the Fly By Night Club and wound up with Gyroscope at McCallum Park on the Swan River. All up, it’s been a pleasure and a privilege to once again be presenting the cream of WA music in pubs, public places, all ages venues and through media outlets state and nation-wide. Now that WAMi 06 is over with, it’s straight back on the horse though for WAMi 07, which is already looking like being the most exciting WAMi Festival yet."
