"As a musician and citizen, I am so grateful to Music Victoria for looking out for our music community. Breakthroughs in things like the live music laws and baggage allowances are amazing achievements and essentially helps to maintain a wonderfully supportive and nurturing environment for the arts in Australia."

 "Fact: our true music “mainstream” is what’s happening in our venues and studios every day and night – not the fraction of a fraction of a percent of music being played on commercial radio. Along with independent / community radio, I just can’t imagine our world-renowned music scene in Melbourne and Victoria without Music Victoria. I’ve seen first-hand how their support, advocacy and resources have been vital to many venues’ and artists’ development, diversity, creativity, and health.

As a small business and someone privileged to listen to and prepare music in its final form for a living, I’m more than happy to give back to this organisation that supports so many brilliant music makers."

Music VIC work extremely hard to ensure that we are a progressive community - they are moving us forward, while always having our backs. It is so important that we support the people who are supporting us."

“Music Victoria are the voice, try and understand it. They look after everyone across the board, and when you're looking for a discount, info session, actual career advice or just a bit of support, they'll have your back. We are lucky to be in Victoria and have opportunities like this under our noses.”

"Music Victoria is an important industry body that gives a combined voice to a music community made up of many unique elements. As a small business we have been the beneficiaries of the planning amendment VC120 that gives rights of first usage to music businesses. Music Victoria, alongside SLAM, worked hard to make this a part of the state’s planning scheme and we were able to successfully object to an apartment development on our border. The more members, the stronger the voice."

"Music Victoria is the voice for bands and musicians! We have saved a tonne of cash for my band for not having to pay excess baggage fees, discounted advertising rates, insurance amongst a tonne of other stuff and are always approachable if there is something you are unsure about or need guidance with. They've been a strong voice for women in the industry, if you got a problem, yo, they'll help solve it. MV are on the streets, in our venues and moshing at our festivals. Never has there been an organisation that have made so many positive changes in our industry. You want it? SUPPORT IT"

"Attempting to play music as a profession can be a surprisingly isolating experience. You can spend a whole heap of time on the computer just trying to get things happening, doing the books, booking stuff. You ring people, you work in the studio, in the back room - and you often wonder if you are heading in the right direction. An organisation like Music Victoria can provide a really welcome sounding board and a sense of solidarity and community. It provides a sense that your quest is not a lone one and that someone else is on your side."

"Being a part of the music industry is an amazing adventure, and like all great adventures there are many joys and perils along the way. You need friends to help you, to guide you away from the pitfalls, to keep you company as you walk through the valleys and to give you a hand as you climb the peaks. Music Victoria is such a friend. Become a member today and share the wild and wonderful journey with them, you'll be glad you did."

"As an artist run label, Music Victoria plays a role in making sure the musicians we work with at Milk! Records are given a voice at a State level. For too long artists have been left out of the conversation. The work Music Victoria does, goes a long way towards remedying that. It's no surprise that we have such a thriving music economy in Victoria."

SLAM

"When 20,000 music lovers marched at the SLAM Rally in 2010 we didn't just march to save The Tote, we marched with a long list of demands and at the top of that list we called upon the government to put up seed funding for a peak body for live music.

Music Victoria exists because you marched for an ongoing voice to represent musicians, venues and the music loving people of Victoria in what is arguably the greatest live music city in the world, let's get behind it and keep music strong in this great state."
