Industry Connect 2018

Since launching last March 2017, QMusic’s newly implemented music program Industry Connect has brought dozens of music industry professionals from around Australia to regional Queensland to share their knowledge and experience.

The program is designed to help early/intermediate career musicians and aspiring music industry professionals get the knowledge, relationships and opportunities they need to succeed and build a career in the music industry.

Industry Connect also provides showcase opportunities throughout the year for musicians within the program, while travel grants can help to bring you to BIGSOUND in September 2018.

Did we mention it's FREE?

Over 13 sessions you’ll learn how to:

  • Take your songwriting to the next level

  • Successfully promote your music on digital music platforms like Spotify and Pandora

  • Run a successful tour

  • Build a team around you or manage your own career

  • And much, much more…

It’s also a great chance to meet other people in your local area that can help you get ahead. 

2018 will see Industry Connect delivered across an even greater number of regions. 

Get in early for 2018 workshops by signing up to our mailing list: 


A selection of the solo artists and bands participating in Industry Connect will get the chance to play at showcase gigs attended by representatives from Australian record labels and publishers.

Participants who attend 80% or more of the Industry Connect sessions will also be considered for travel and ticketing support to attend BIGSOUND, Australia’s premier music industry event, held in Brisbane every September.?

Whether you want to be touring musician, artist manager or understand how to book a venue, be a music publicist or start your own record label, Industry Connect is all about arming you with the knowledge and resources to make the right decisions and connect you to the right people.

Industry Connect is delivered by QMusic, Queensland’s music industry development association. QMusic creates pathways to music industry success. 

Plug in. Skill Up. Amplify. 

QMusic is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
