Minister for Creative Industries Martin Foley said Music Passport is part of a suite of programs designed to strengthen all aspects of the Victorian music industry. “Our multifaceted Music Works initiative aims to strengthen our industry at all levels – from artists and venues to labels, managers and those working behind the scenes. The Music Passport stream focuses on supporting local musicians and music businesses to forge international connections and create new opportunities. I encourage all Face the Music delegates to find out more about the program at this year’s conference and explore new ways to ensure your music ‘works’ in Victoria, and right across the globe.”

The Face The Music conference will include talks designed to open music industry conversation between Australia and Germany.
