Music Victoria Announces Live Music Professionals 2018

Are you passionate about making a change in your community through live music? The good people of Music Victoria have announced that applications are now open for Live Music Professionals 2018—a free professional and business development program for independent promoters, venue owners, venue managers and band bookers.

Focusing on creating meaningful connections with industry superstars, successful applicants will be matched with some of Victoria’s most skilled and experienced music industry professionals for one-on-one coaching in key business-based areas. What this means is that you’ll be mentored by some of the industry’s best in areas tailored specifically to benefit you, with the program being designed to strengthen Victoria’s live music sector as it’s brought to you by Music Under Wings, a Victorian Government initiative.

In 2017, coaches in this program included the likes of publicist and manager Carolyn Logan, owner of The Tote and Bar Open Jon Perring, Groovin The Moo festival booker Richard Moffat, manager and co-producer of the Hills Are Alive Festival Aidan McLaren, and Alex Zaccaria of digital marketing agency Bolster.

The program is free and applications are open until April 3rd with Victorians of all backgrounds who meet the eligibility requirements encouraged to apply. You’ll also need to have some free time up your sleeve between July-November to get mentored, of course. Read more and apply here: www.musicvictoria.com.au/livemusicprofessionals
