Who Knows About Australian Music Week?

SallyCanwait 27 Jan 2005 00:23

I've seen the Australin Music Week advertised around for late Feb (I think). Does anyone know much about it? I'm interested to know.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

Australia Music Week is big, some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry come to Melbourne or Sydney to perform or lecture.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

I think it's only unsigned bands, but yeah, I got into it last year and it was real good. Who knows of any bands that maybe playing, and where. The AMW site hasnt got all that much...</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

They don' t get paid. They are being notified now if they are in - i am still hoping to get in. There will be 120 bands playing throughout Melbourne in the city at the same time the conference is on - it draws people from all over Aust for the workshops which you can book per session.

Ben Smith won 3 categories last year - Best Performer, Best Acoustic Song and...Best Overall I think. He went to Atlanta as his prize.

Mmmm, who is actually behind "Oz music week"? Record companies? Is it a government initiative? The concept seems rather fuzzy if it promotes free music for venues and the industry in general without paying the musicians. Maybe bands will just have to scalp tickets to the "industry lectures".....lol</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

We entered and haven't heard a peep out of these people. With the last few festivals we entered at least they had the courtesy of sending a "sorry, but not this time" letter... and there has been no post on their website as to the selections either, not only that but how, where and with whom has been a mystery too... not happy Jan...
anyhoo keep in apathy

Correctamundo Pox.
Not great incentives, but all the same, it's a pretty cool set up.
I seen some of the bands advertised that are playin the Pony, looks pretty good. I'd like to know if they'll charge to see shows, you'd think so.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

There is no cover charge for any of the showcases during AMW. And the conference is free to the bands. The event this year is all about the bands and the music for the bands.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

'B wiv Deece' were lucky enough to play Pony on the Friday night as part of this. It was a great few days, learnt a hell of a lot at the confrences, big ups to Colleen & Jodie for all the hard work.
They didn't door charge the night, and we weren't paid in$. We were paid with a free pass to all the sessions, and I can tell you that was probibly our highest paid gig yet, loved being a part of this, great all round vibe!
Cheers,
Dave.
