The return of the WAMi Music Business Conference to the 2012 WAMi Festival, presented in partnership with the Phonographic Performance Company of Australia (PPCA) will see a strong program of essential knowledge, networking and pitching opportunities happen on Friday 1 June at the Bakery.
25 Local, interstate and international speakers will be speaking as part of the conference, including the Keynote address with Pat Pattison (Berklee College Music, USA) talking with Lucky Oceans about the songwriting tools that have helped Pat's students, including John Mayer and Gillian Welch, win Grammys and write number one songs.

With a wealth of industry visitors in Perth during the WAMi Festival, WAM will again host Industry Speed Dating for workshop participants, which involves one-on-one meetings with speakers, lawyers and industry guests.
The Festival Pitch Panel will take place on Saturday 2 June at the Bakery and give the opportunity to four West Australian acts on the stage to perform to festival booking agents from Perth International Arts Festival, Fairbridge Festival, Nannup Festival, Sounds Australia, and more, all in front of a live audience.
