AMW Program

AMW2005 10 Feb 2005 14:46

Hi All, I am really sorry that the website is not up to date. Trish and I had so many applications that it has been really hard to get it all done before now. The bands that have not made the final cut will be sent an email but we need to sort the event first.

This year the whole event is free to bands including the conference and opening etc, we have also secure free accommodation for the interstate bands. We don't pay the bands because the whole week is to expose and support Australian Music and acts and none of us get paid it is all volunteer based and we put about 5 months work into it. The website will be updated by the end of the week and the press will begin next week.

I have pated the program for you all below. I hope you all come and support your fellow musicians and Australian Live Music
Cheers
Colleen
