Scouting the world to bring in top-notch talent buyers, from festival directors to record labels, radio pluggers and management, Australian Music Week director, Geoff Trio said the team is more excited than ever to open this year’s applications for showcasing artists.
“Australian Music Week is unique in that it is still relatively small, which makes it so much easier for artists and industry to genuinely connect, with actual on-the-ground discoveries and new deals happening over the days of the conference.
“As well as bringing in representatives from Australia’s leading festivals and organisations, we have brokered powerful partnerships with a number of international events who will come to Australian Music Week to discover acts for launching into markets like North America, Asia and Europe.
“The opportunities are real and so are the great results we’re seeing grow year on year.”
Taking place over five days, Australian Music Week showcases over 150 performances across a wide range of genres, presents more than 20 panels addressing the latest industry issues with leading Australian and international figures, as well as hosts a Music Film Festival and the annual Folk, Americana and Country Music Conferences.
Showcase applications now open at www.australianmusicweek.com and close 7 September.
