Music Australia’s national contemporary music industry conference returns for 2017, providing a unique opportunity for contemporary music policy and industry development. We hope to see you there as industry professionals gather, deliberate, and set action agendas for contemporary music growth from 1 Tues – Thurs 3, August 2017 Customs House, Circular Quay Sydney.

The conference program and ticketing information can be found at the Music Australia website

The Live Music Office will be co presenting two sessions –

1 August:  Regional Music Policy Makers Forum

Time:  2.00pm – 5.00pm

A forum for those developing music policies and implementing live music initiatives beyond our major cities. We survey what’s working, what the data tells us, what’s needed, and opportunities, particularly for networked action. The forum explores good transferrable initiatives, the potential for regional city music strategies, offers access to best practice thinking, and highlights innovative approaches in regional areas.

2 August:  Audience Development for Live Music

Time:  10.15am – 11.15am

Developing audiences and public engagement is central to music sector growth, where tomorrow’s fans are developed today. There are significant opportunities – and a need -to broaden demand for music consumption. Conference ticketing partner Moshtix, together with Live Performance Australia, share the latest data, we examine the biggest issues and challenges and explore collaborative marketing and other proactive approaches.
