The Federal Election

As the Victorian peak body for music, when it comes to Federal issues, we work closely together with our national counterparts including APRA/AMCOS, AMPAL, AIR, ARIA, Australian Live Music Business Council (ALMBC), Live Performance Australia (LPA), Association of Artist Managers (AAM), OpenMIC, LiVE Alliance, AFA (Australian Festivals Association) and Australian Music Industry Network (AMIN of which we are a member) to establish our shared priorities.

Election Messaging

Together with fifteen national art and culture peak bodies, Music Victoria is participating in a values based messaging campaign that drives awareness and influence in the lead up to the Federal election.

We invite everyone in the creative industries to join the campaign and share the Essential and Everywhere messages which can be tailored to your audience. We are using the term "music" but other participants are using "arts and culture", "entertainment", etc.

1. Music is Everywhere

Here we want to emphasise the breadth and reach of music. Music can be found in every part of Australia; every state and territory, metropolitan and regional, it's at home, at the pub, in your car, in the gym, at a festival, at the shops, indoors, outdoors, and in your ears. It engages a huge cross section of the Australian population in its many forms and enriches lives whether people work in the sector or are a participant, a listener or audience member.

2. Music is Essential

Here we want to highlight the importance of music. Music is critical to so many other parts of our economy. Music is how we project our national image. Music is entertainment, diversity, mental wellbeing, childhood development, employment, tourism, and much much more.

3. Use Your Vote to Support Music

Her we want to get people to think about which party and/or candidate supports Australian music the best.
