Music Victoria launch a new program - LIVE MUSIC PROFESSIONALS


Music Victoria is excited to launch Live Music Professionals – a brand new program targeting independent promoters and venues. The program aims to help individuals in the Victorian music community build sustainable live music businesses. 

Successful applicants will be matched with some of Victoria's most skilled and experienced music industry professionals for one-on-one coaching sessions in key areas tailored to their individual or business needs. Participants will also attend specialised workshops, Face The Music – Victoria’s annual contemporary music industry conference – and have access to invaluable networking opportunities. 

Music Victoria is very excited about delivering this program,’’ said Music Victoria CEO Patrick Donovan. “The program is specifically targeted at the needs of the Victorian live music sector and will up-skill the next generation of leading promoters and venue operators to ensure the Victorian live music sector continues to grow and prosper.” 

Shaun Adams from Karova Lounge in Ballarat says, “Having spent most of my life working and supporting the music industry in regional areas, I?would have only dreamed for a program like this to exist when I first started. Its amazing to have opportunities like this to exist outside the metro?regions and hopefully it can inspire the next generation of artists and venues to keep feeding the Victorian music landscape."

Individuals from live music venues (owner, bookers, and managers) and independent promoters can now apply for a position in the free program. Applications from Victorians of all backgrounds are encouraged apply. 

Applications for the free Live Music Professionals program are open until 31 March 2017.
