Learn how to get your band ahead at the 2020 UNDERPROOF Workshops!

We’re stoked to announce UNDERPROOF is coming back to the Northern Beaches in 2021! Last year we gave 5 local bands with under 500 Facebook likes the chance to play a massive, sold-out show with Hockey Dad, and this year’s going to be even bigger.

The big show goes down on Saturday 26 June, but before then Happy Mag are running a series of five workshops for UNDERPROOF entrants and any other bands who would like to attend.

Underproof 2020 workshops

Want to learn how the music industry works? Join Happy Mag, KALOF, and special guests at the offical UNDERPROOF 2020 workshops.

Do you have a single but don’t know how to upload it to Spotify or Apple Music? Need to know how to demo your tracks at home? Wondering the best way to get booked for shows? Experts on all this and more from the Happy Mag team will be present at the workshops – so come with plenty of questions to ask.

All bands who enter the running to play UNDERPROOF on June 26th, 2021 are required to attend the workshops. Only one band member needs to come, but as many as possible are encouraged to attend if you want to get the most out of the sessions.
