As the Australian entertainment industry continues to patch up the cracks left by COVID-19, Main Stage aims to lay out the best ways forward.

Main Stage is a newly announced virtual forum co-produced by UNIFIED Music Group and Bolster, in partnership with Creative Victoria. The industry-focussed event will explore the ways brands and agencies will interact with artists and their representatives throughout this period of recovery.

The event will be hosted by Funny Business Podcast’s Rob Hicks and Lachlan Bradford, and will feature prepared presentations as well as panel discussions and live Q&As. Expect to hear from representatives of Secret Sounds, Mushroom Group, Universal Music’s creative agency BRING, and more.
