What is Limelight?
Limelight is a music support fund presented by RAC Arena and supported by WAM. The goal of the initiative is to put the spotlight on up and coming WA musicians, to help them become the next arena act.
We consider ourselves incredibly fortunate to be able to host world class live entertainment for the people of WA, and welcome the opportunity to give back to the community in this small way.
Limelight Music Support Fund 2023
After successfully launching the Limelight Music Support Fund in 2022 and awarding Alter Boy the inaugural winner, RAC Arena is once again offering an annual support package for one well deserving WA artist or act.
This year, there will be even more opportunities for WA musos to have their time to shine, with two runners-up set to receive assistance alongside the main recipient.
The main prize is worth over $15,000 and includes financial assistance, music equipment, performance and promotional opportunities. Two runners-up will also receive a financial boost and promotion, valued at $3,000 each.
Applications for the 2023 Limelight Music Support Fund have now closed. Winners will be notified and announced in December.
