Final 10 tickets released, plus triple j Unearthed session added
Last year was a sell-out, this year’s early-bird tickets flew out the door, and the final 10 tickets have just been released for The Melbourne Sessions on Friday 5 July at Kindred Studios, Yarraville.
A ticket secures a place to a full day of presentations, masterclasses, workshops and networking opportunities for emerging and mid-career songwriters and composers – plus the chance to attend a special triple j Unearthed information session with Music Director Dave Ruby Howe. Ticket holders will be receiving information in their inbox shortly from event organisers with instructions to register for the newly added offering. Places will be limited.
Dave Ruby Howe will also be part of a Music Business Panel at The Melbourne Sessions, which is presented by APRA AMCOS and the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria.
As previously announced, the keynote ‘In Conversation’ will be delivered by influential American producerChris Walla, founding and former member of seminal indie band Death Cab for Cutie.
A couple of exciting additions to the speaker and artist roster to note: acclaimed singer and songwriter Ainslie Wills will be leading a 75-minute masterclass on the art and practice of songwriting and hitmaking. And Camp Cope’s Georgia Maq will be helming one of the small group songwriting workshops in the afternoon portion of the day.
The Melbourne Sessions was created as a high-impact day to foster the creativity, connections and industry knowledge of emerging and mid-career songwriters and composers as they make professional inroads into the competitive global music market. The day culminates in fitting style with a curated performance and ample networking time.
