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.”

– Al Parkinson

Alex Lahey

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.”

– Angie McMahon (Band Member)

“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”

KYLIE MINOGUE

– Mick Harvey

MICK THOMAS

“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.”

– Mick Thomas

MIKELANGELO

“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.”

– Mikelangelo

– My Disco

“Music Victoria is a support network for all artists here in Victoria. Their support of women, indigenous musicians, new acts, legal issues and the wider music community enables us to have the freedom and networks that allow us to create and perform our art to wider audiences across Australia and the world. What more can you ask for?”

– Nkechi Anele / Saskwatch

– Stonefield
