Facilitators joining the program this year are currently working with Flight Facilities, LDRU, Thundamentals, Styalz Fuego (Peking Duk, Daniel Johns, EXO), Baker Boy, Mallrat, Tired Lion, Tkay Maidza, Kwame, Bobby Alu and Luude.
Participants will get the chance to meet and learn from a diverse selection of music industry professionals including, Independent, major labels and directly from Queensland artists, The Kite String Tangle, Jaguar Jones and more - full list below.
Once on board, 2019 INDUSTRY CONNECT participants will be in the running to receive a personalised PR and digital distribution package from GYROstream and the opportunity to attend a three-day songwriting retreat at Heliport Studios on the Sunshine Coast.
To sweeten the deal, QMusic’s donors community will fund five INDUSTRY CONNECT participants to attend BIGSOUND Festival 3-6 September, to further their networks and learn from some of the best minds around the globe. The bursary includes delegate passes, flights to Brisbane and accommodation.
“The feedback, the connection, the feeling of being part of the music community and the culture allowed me to gain confidence in my music and narrow focus on my release”DVNA,
“..these workshops have made me more confident in many aspects of my career within the music industry. The workshops and panelists have been really helpful and I would highly recommend them to aspiring artists"Greta Stanley,
