Back to All Events


RTRFM’s local music festival Distant Murmurs returns for it’s fourth year at the Rosemount Hotel for, with over 20 acts across three stages, boasting a line up of new and up-coming local bands as we kick off 2018 with a bang.

It all kicks off in the Rosemount Hotel Beer Garden from 6pm, with everyone’s favourite RTRFM volunteer The Whipcracker DJing alongside Will Slade, plus the futuristic beats and rhymes of Toyotomi, neo-soul wunder kids Demon Days, mind blowing production from Shy Time, pop magic from Your Girl Pho, driving beats and rhythms of Bonny Upwelling and the multi layered sounds of Human Buoy.

In 459 it’s going to a little loud and raucous with the no nonsense sounds of Apollo Zen, the in your face punk of Chick Spit, the madness and joy of Debbie Downers and the brilliance of Shit Narnia.

And in the Rosemount main room it’s a mixed bang of sounds with the unknown sounds of the winner of MOJO Rising Band Competition to be revealed on December 2nd 2017, the brilliant song writing of Carla Geneve, the Brit pop sounds of DIY Rainclouds, the intoxicating rawness of Hussy, the mind-blowing amazement of Benjamin Witt and the wondrous pop melodies of The Money War.

Distant Murmurs is the best way to spend a summer Saturday afternoon, immersed in tunes from the present and future of Perth’s musical landscape.
