2019 Delegate Archive

The next Contemporary Music Roundtable (CMR) will be held 5 – 6 June, 2019 at Erskineville Town Hall in Sydney. Hosted by Music Australia and made possible by our Government Partner City of Sydney, the CMR is uniquely positioned at NSW’s number one music industry conference and the national go to policy and development event. Now in its fourth year, the CMR program was 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.

Music Australia has had no difficulty getting together great people to discuss music industry issues, but has been less effective in getting great outcomes from getting people together. For the 2019 Roundtable, we have slimmed down the agenda and guest list, in the hope of achieving actionable outcomes on a few key issues. 

This is a free, invite only event. The 2019 CMR Delegates are:
