Day two kicks off with even more workshops from the Abbey Road Institute and Studios 301 team, including a Production Workshop with our very own Jess Des and Remixing Workshop with Dave Truong and Ryan Collings.

As mentioned, L-FRESH the Lion will deliver his thought-provoking keynote in the morning, before we welcome Ray Beadle and Tasman Guitar, and an APRA AMCOS 101 workshop, covering the function of the organisation, the support it offers and how you can make the most out of your membership.

Geoff Trio, CEO of Australian Music Week, says the Industry Access Music Conference is the natural evolution of Australian Music Week.

“The 5-day conference in Cronulla was a space for music lovers, artists, and industry professionals to connect, network, and do business. With so much recent change in the music industry, forums like this are more important than ever. I encourage all attendees to participate and learn as much as possible. Dig in, network, teach and learn. Results always depend on the effort, but the goal is to find creative solutions and succeed in this music business we’re in.”

“I’m so excited to bring this conference to Studios 301,” says Ron Haryanto, General Manager of Studios 301 and CEO of Abbey Road Institute Sydney.

“The combination of Abbey Road Institute’s education objectives and style, with the direct industry excellence and community of Studios 301, is the perfect match for what Australian Music Week started. We hope this Industry Access Music Conference will become a regular forum, bringing our community together and continuing the conversation on how we can thrive in this challenging industry.”
