About

The National Contemporary Music Roundtable is a two day music industry policy and development conference held annually in Sydney in August. The program is developed in partnership with all national music industry peak bodies, specialist agencies, and key commercial companies, and has a core objective to cooperatively drive growth of Australian contemporary music. All facets of music are covered including creators, jobs, skills, investment, economic contribution, cultural impact, public engagement and government investment.

Contemporary Music Roundtable 2015

Contemporary Music Roundtable 2016

The Roundtable provides the national forum for contemporary music policy and industry development, with:

  • Keynote speakers & panellists: music leaders, artists, executives, and government representatives
  • Delegates from industry peak bodies, commercial companies, policy makers, researchers and musicians
  • Advocates for contemporary music and its cultural and economic value, and agendas for growth
  • Informal networking with senior national music industry identities


Background

The Roundtable was born in 2015 when 50 industry representatives gathered to jointly advance strategic priorities. This led to a National Contemporary Music Plan launched in 2016, providing a shared industry wide blueprint, underpinned by statistical data and resources.

The 2016 Roundtable in Sydney tripled in size, with over 150 delegates working strategically and collaboratively with all national peak bodies and agencies, towards an ambitious agenda for industry growth. Music Australia hosts this business conference, acting as an independent, industry wide catalyst.
