Music Careers Expo

Posted by Team APATA | Jul 13, 2023

The Push Music Careers Expo is back ­– and it’s bigger than ever! Coming to Victoria, South Australia, and for the first time ever, Queensland.

The free, one-day event will provide you with the insights and information on how to get a start in the Australian music industry, as well as demystify everything you need to know about a career in music.

Featuring keynote presentations, workshops and focussed interactions, the three events will give you the opportunity meet one-on-one with industry practitioners and education providers offering tailored advice.

Kate Duncan, CEO, The Push: “As The Push expands our reach nationally, we are beyond excited to be connecting with new communities of young people at our Music Careers Expo events in Queensland, South Australia and Victoria. We know that now more than ever, we need to be fostering a pipeline for music industry practitioners, and the Music Careers Expo does this – legitimising and expanding young people’s understanding of the various pathways that exist.”
