Festival Director, Melbourne Music Week
Elise Peyronnet started her career in music in an independent record label in Paris, working on artistic projects with the likes of Beastie Boys, Jeff Mills and Femi Kuti. She came to Australia three years ago and has managed Melbourne Music Week since it was first launched by the City of Melbourne. MMW takes over the city in November for a nine-day-long program of curated events. Winning the 2010 Australian Event Awards for the Best New Event in its first year, Melbourne Music Week is the only event of its type in Australia offering a unique model of co-production to the music sector to support and directly work with the industry.
