Many industries have struggled over the last few months, however, the hit we have seen the music industry take is heartbreaking for us all.
Yet, in an effort to support the struggling music sector, Music Victoria has just announced some pretty awesome news.
From now and until the 30th of June, Victorians can access an annual membership to Music Victoria for free.
Music Victoria is the state’s leading body when it comes to representing the music industry and their annual membership will offer a huge number of benefits to its members. This includes discounted rates on advertising and recording studio sessions, opportunities for advocacy, free health services, professional development events, merchandise production, as well as some pretty generous discounts on a number of retail stores, hospitality outlets, and music-related services.
What’s great about a Music Victoria membership is that individuals, bands or business entities can sign up and get the most out of some pretty incredible benefits. And, while the membership is typically priced between $33 and $440, you’ll be saving some big bucks if you sign up before the end of June.
CEO of Music Victoria, Patrick Donovan, discussed the hardship and struggle of the music industry in a press conference. He also opened up about what he hopes a free membership to Music Victoria would achieve:
“With the free membership offer, we are opening our arms up to all of you, so we work through the crisis together and plan on how we can come out of it stronger and capitalise on opportunities in the new landscape.”
Music Victoria is holding strong that no one in the industry should be left behind and the fact that everyone can access Music Victoria’s services is incredible. If you live in Victoria, jump online, have a look at the various membership options and sign up now.
