Here’s The Lineup For Australia’s Newest Industry Conference, Australian Music Week

Written by Emmy Mack on September 3, 2015

Watch out BIGSOUND, Australia’s got itself a brand new music industry summit and the inaugural lineup is a flippin’ doozy.

The first ever Australian Music Week conference is scheduled to take place across Sydney’s The Shire this November, featuring 60 massive local acts spanning the entire genre-spectrum, including Lepers And Crooks, Ivan Ooze, Guards Of May, The Belligerents, Betty & Oswald, Tropical Zombie, WAXHEAD and more.

The second wave of acts has also just been unveiled, adding the likes of Jenny Broke The Window, Chase The Sun, Drawcard, Mar Haze, Kristafor Farrenkothen, Lillye and stacks of others.

Not to mention there’s also a monster list of industry speakers, almost as long as the artist lineup, which includes triple j’s Nick Findlay, UNFD’s Nick Yates, John Mullen from Dew Process, PledgeMusic’s Scot Crawford, Woodford Folk Festival’s Chloe Goodyear and so many others that between them there’s probably enough brainpower to fully charge the world’s entire stock of iPods.

In addition to the second artist announcement, Aus Music Week have also launched a new music video project, called Captured.

As The Music reports, the comp will see local bands and filmmakers team up to create a music video or short film, with the finished products to premiere as part of AMW.

The winners will be announced on closing night, with a major prize from sponsors to be awarded to the champion.

You can apply here, with entries closing at 5pm on Monday, 14th September.

And that’s not all, AMW has also partnered with the Canadian Independent Music Association and East Coast Music Association, who’ll offer up two artists apiece for a showcase at the inaugural event.

“We’re really excited by this opportunity,” AMW director Geoff Trio said in a statement. “By opening this opportunity for Canadian artists, we will aim to work on reciprocal deals for Australian acts in Canada and other international markets, which we hope will result in tour swaps and collaborations in writing, recordings etc.”

The first annual Australian Music Week will run from November 18th – 22nd at venues across Cronulla. Tickets are on sale now. Check out the full artist and industry speaker lineups so far, below.
