Donor Community



Music is something we all love, but it’s also something we all take for granted. Maybe that’s because it’s impossible to imagine a world without music.

But it’s never been a harder time to be a professional musician, especially for artists from remote and regional Queensland. Aside from the fact that artists don’t make money from the sale of recorded music anymore, and governments are making it harder than ever for pubs and clubs to stage live music, geographical isolation creates social and economic barriers that prevent some of our most talented up-and-coming musicians from realising their dreams.

We are building a committed community of donors that rescue these musicians from the tyranny of distance and place them on equal footing with their Brisbane counterparts. Your donation will give talented artists from regional and remote Queensland access to ongoing support from national leaders in the music industry, as well as the opportunity to perform at the southern hemisphere’s premier festival of new music, BIGSOUND, held in Brisbane every September.

A minimum $500 donation also entitles you to:

  • VIP invitation and all-access passes to BIGSOUND and the Queensland Music Awards
  • Invitation to private donor functions - a great chance to expand your professional networks
  • A monthly newsletter that keeps you up to date with the coolest new music and the best upcoming gigs
  • Ongoing updates on the progress of our work with artists in regional and remote Queensland

 The future of Queensland music is in your hands….

Our donor program launches at Christmas 2017. For more details, contact the QMusic office on (07) 3257 0013. QMusic is a DGR-registered not-for-profit association.
