Kickstart your music career at FEEDBACK conference

After a two-year hiatus, FEEDBACK is returning in 2022 with a stunning lineup of speakers and panellists to answer any questions you have about the music biz.

It’s no secret that the music industry has copped a walloping since the beginning of the pandemic, so you probably have more questions than ever about kickstarting a career in music. Luckily, FEEDBACK has your back.

FEEDBACK is a youth music conference organised by MusicNSW, designed to answer your questions about everything from career opportunities in the industry, to the radically changing music landscape, and everything in between.

If you’re more organised than us and already have plans for tomorrow, cancel them right now and grab tickets for this incredible conference which will be hosted by JMC Academy in Ultimo.

Wollongong-based rapper and activist Dobby will be taking the reins as the event’s host, with Barkaa stepping up as this year’s keynote speaker.

There’s also a huge list of industry pros from record labels, radio, booking agencies, and a bunch of other places, all gearing up to answer any question thrown at them.

So if you’re between the ages of 12 and 25, FEEDBACK is a perfect opportunity to find out how to get gigs, release music, build a fan base, get airplay, work with a publicist, booking agent, or manager, or become one yourself.

Sounds incredible right? You can grab tickets to the in-person event here, or if you’re feeling more like a virtual experience, online tickets can be purchased here.
