SOTA (State of the Art) Music Festival is back with a 2020 socially-distant edition – SOTAstream.

Featuring a dizzying line-up of local talent streamed live from music mecca Freo.Social straight to your living room, back yard, local park or wherever you are around our State, you will get a front row seat to the hottest event this WA Day long weekend.

With venues forced to close and artists unable to perform due to COVID-19, SOTAstream gives some of WA’s most recognisable musos the chance to get back performing in front of crowds, albeit separated by a screen.

The line-up stars outstanding fan favourites, in alphabetical order:

  • Abbe May
  • Carla Geneve
  • Drapht
  • Gina Williams & Guy Ghouse
  • Methyl Ethel
  • Psychedelic Porn Crumpets
  • San Cisco

Streaming live MONDAY 1 JUNE 2pm – 8pm (WST) here on PerthNow, so be sure to bookmark this page and come back to tune in and watch the live stream.

SOTAsteam is derived from the desire to support, nurture and grow creative opportunities for local artists, and position contemporary music as a leading cultural identifier for WA.

When is WA Day?

WA Day is always held on the first Monday in June. In 2020, it will be on Monday 1 June.

What is WA Day?

In April 2012, Foundation Day was formally changed to WA Day following bipartisan political support in the Western Australian Parliament.

This welcomed in a new era for the State with WA Day being a universal celebration of all Western Australians, recognising our Aboriginal history, early European settlers and the many people from all over the world who have made, and continue to make, Western Australia their home.

As a vast geographic area comprising many different urban, rural and regional communities, as well as being a very multicultural community, the emphasis for WA Day celebrations is on inclusion of all people no matter how long they have called themselves Western Australians.
