BACKING AUSSIE ARTISTS, MUSIC BUSINESSES AND FANS
2020 has been a tough year and the road to recovery looks different for everyone. But remember, MUSIC IS WHAT UNITES US. From the venue owners to the performers on stage. From hit songs to the writers behind them and the listeners hitting play. If the music stops then everything stops. So don’t stop.
Keep singing. Keep dancing. Keep writing songs. Keep buying records. Keep broadcasting. Keep innovating. Keep teaching. Keep streaming. Keep sharing songs.
Let’s come together and KEEP THE MUSIC PLAYING!
We’re giving the Australian music industry and the fans that support it, a helping hand and the opportunity to share in the
