Local Artists


As you know we’ve got some HUGE acts heading your way this August, including the likes of The Rubens, You Am I, Sarah Blasko, Urthboy and so much more (check them all out here)! Thanks to RedFM and Kosmic, we’re giving one lucky band or solo artist the chance to join the line-up and open the stage at North West Festival 2016!

Rolling around again this year, this year’s comp has unearthed some absolute gems hiding away in the small towns of the beautiful North West. 

We have been overwhelmed by the support you have shown for your local North West muso’s in our ‘Best Of The North West’ Band Competition! The votes have been tallied and we are extremely excited to announce that the fabulous Miss Max will be bringing her soulful melodies and acoustic indie musings along to open the North West Festival stage! . She battled it out alongside her incredible fellow finalist’s; Bojesse Pigram & Manhattans Wake to take the title of ‘Best Of The North West’. Working as a deckhand and tour guide, fueling a passion for the outdoors and the ocean on the Ningaloo Reef, Miss Max has always enjoyed her other love, singing.
