RTRFM's Music Assistant Darcy Love shares five must-watch artists at this year’s Fremantle Winter Music Festival.
This past May, RTRFM dared to be a little different as we asked our incredible band of supporters to show us some love for our annual donation drive – Radio Love Month.
And golly did you come through with the goods. Thanks to your efforts, we raised over $5,000 to help keep our station thriving. A huge thank you goes out to all who donated, shared, called in and emailed us with stories and dedications of love for your community radio station.
As always, the fun never stops around here as we launch the much-anticipated Fremantle Winter Music Festival (FWMF), set to take place on Saturday 22 June. This unique event sees Fremantle come alive with killer local acts taking over multiple venues across the port city.

Music Assistant Darcy Love has managed to hone down to a mere five must-watch artists at this year’s Fremantle Winter Music Festival. Take notes as there’ll be a pop quiz at the end. Probably.
Iconic post-metal, doom-gaze outfit bring a powerful and tense atmosphere with their performances, leaving me hooked and wanting more.
The precocious upstarts of our city's burgeoning neo-soul scene; I’m keen to check out their funky combination of jazz and soul live.
He’s one of the most thoughtful and skilled lyricists in Australia, let alone Perth; hip hop heaven for those so inclined (eg. me).
Something different here that I’m really keen on – cues taken from the '60s, with a distinct and gorgeous analogue quality befitting their jangly garage riffs.
Crisp, club-ready electronic music that’s not shy in the lower end; one to watch for anyone seeking some dancefloor heat.
