Face The Music is thrilled to announce a new partnership with the Victorian government for this year’s conference to provide skills development and sector engagement for our contemporary music community.

As well as supporting new networking activities and helping to bring international experts and tastemakers to Face The Music, Creative Victoria will present a hands-on grant writing workshop to help people submit successful applications to the new Music Works Grants initiative.

You can book to attend the small workshop It’s a Showcase, Not a Show, where Australia’s music Export-Experts roll up their sleeves to deliver a practical workshop for bands who are hoping to showcase at international marketplaces. Joined on stage for a live demonstration by Client Liaison and Money For Rope, their sound engineers and managers, Sounds Australia give an invaluable guide to understanding how an international showcase differs from playing a regular show, with advice including song choice, tips for fast changeovers and how to modify your stage plot for a streamlined set-up.

For the first time in its eight-year history, Face The Music adds an epic live music element, with early morning gigs in the park, laid-back lunchtime sets to enjoy with food truck delights and party beats for afternoon networking to bring the vibes to the Arts Centre precinct.

And on Friday November 13, wear your fave Aussie band t-shirt, take a photo and tag it with #AusmusicTshirtDay to be part of the nationwide celebration of Australian music.

Limited Face The Music passes are still available through our Tickets Page, with member discounts available from Music Victoria, AAM, APRA, AIR, Collarts, AIM and The Push.
