The iconic Australian Music Week has just announced the first round of the 80-strong speaker lineup for its 2018 festivities, taking place in Cronulla Beach from the 7th - 9th November.
Bringing together a veritable who's who from artists and industry professionals, Australian Music Week has stoically established itself as one of the most diverse and accessible events in the Aussie music calendar, offering something for everyone no matter what stage of your career you're in. And after acting as a haven for every facet of the biz since 2015, this year's Aus Music Week is guaranteed to be a cracker with three days of panels, masterclass workshops and over 150 live showcases.
In case you missed it, late last week we got a sneak peek into some of the speakers and industry delegates who will be leading the pack in November, including: Mike Schwartz (Musician Health and Wellness), Deanna Lynch (award-winning digital illustrator, musician and artist manager with Amplifire Music), music-tech veteran Hazel Savage, Chrissie Vincent (head of entertainment manager, Collarts), Graham Ashton (Footstomp Music), Cathy Kirkpatrick (Nomadic Fish), Will Watson (PS Music Group), Poppy Reid (Seventh Street Media), Andy McLean (Canada's East Coast Music Association), plus a full day of Music Marketing Masterclasses delivered by a dizzying array of industry wizards, including Kylie Cobb (Kitty Kitty Bang Bang) and Samantha Morris (Blank GC, Gold Coast Music Awards).
But wait - that's not all! With more speakers and delegates to be announced soon, 2018's Aus Music Week is shaping up as a must-do, and tickets are on sale now via Oztix with prices starting at $25 for one night, and a cheap as chips early-bird full conference pass currently going for $99.
Plus, if you're an artist applications are still open - you've got until the 18th of August to apply.
