Australian music Week 2018
This year’s conference will host over 150+ live performances.

“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, new business relationships and deals forming over the days of the conference.

“The opportunities are real, the panels and workshops are highly relevant and the great results we’re seeing for artists, service providers and music buyers grows stronger every year,” said conference manager Jon Howell.
