Music Victoria Membership Drive

Join Camp Cope, Kylie Auldist, UNIFIED, Pieater Records, local venues and businesses as members of Music Victoria in 2017


A Music Victoria membership is for everyone.

It not only offers a huge range of discounts and professional development opportunities but it also ensures that Music Victoria can continue to advocate on behalf of our state’s world-renowned music scene.

New and existing members who renew between 22 and 31 March 2017 will go into the running for a swag of amazing prizes, and are rewarded with 15 new member discounts across the state.

 Camp Cope, Kylie Auldist, Jo Syme (Big Scary, Pieater), Rich Stanley (The Tote, Aarght Records), Matthew Rogers (UNIFIED) and James Young (Cherry Bar, Yah Yahs) are amongst those within the Victorian music community who stand behind Music Victoria as an independent, not-for-profit organisation and the state’s peak body for contemporary music.

Music Victoria champions Victorian music through advocacy, professional development, and support for our thriving music industry and its people with a loud and clear voice – your voice. From local music lovers to bands, artists to venues, non-profit organisations and professional businesses, all who sign up as a Music Victoria Member are contributing to this collective voice.

“I wanna know why we have 12.5 million attendances at gigs in this state every damn year, and not every musician, small business and punter is a paid up member!” – Patrick Donovan, Music Victoria CEO says in The Usual Suspects Membership Drive Video.


Music Victoria cherishes its loyal members who renew each year, but this year it is reaching out beyond ’the usual suspects’, which is the theme of this year’s promotional video.
