What’s your big idea? Your out-of-the-ordinary live music show concept that is oh, so excellent. The kind of “hell yeah” moment that people will lose their minds over. Let’s work together to make it happen!
We are looking to co-produce your one-of-a-kind festival show that:
- Is presented in postcode 3056, 3055 or 3057
- Speaks to current issues and trends both in the world at large and the contemporary music landscape
- Champions our festival tenets:
- Engages with our priority communities (women and gender diverse, ATSI, people with a disability, migrant and refugee, and LGBTQI+)
- Fosters local audiences, our existing audience or brings new audiences to the festival
- Can be flexible and respond to COVID-19 restrictions as required
Your one-of-a-kind festival show can comprise live music and performance, be a happening, an exhibition, activation, workshop, talk, industry development idea or any other form of expression that brings together your original ideas to make something entirely new that would find a perfect outlet in a festival context.
It can be many things - conceptual, fantastical, multi-sensory, wonderful, colourful, collaborative, unconventional, extraordinary, thought provoking, awe-inspiring, moving or straight up entertaining. It will be great.
Examples from previous years include:
Dolly: A Tribute – a night of re-interpreted classics and rarities from the Queen of Country courtesy of five incredible Melbourne musicians that had the whole room dancing in the aisles
Seen and Believed – an exhibition of photo-documentation of Melbourne’s diverse and intricate underground music scene curated by Naomi Lee Beveridge
Undone at 31 – Martin Frawley’s solo album launch that happened 21 times over 21 nights in a Sydney Road shopfront converted into the artists’ bedroom with surprise special guests nightly
Brunswick Music FEASTival – a sold out show in the 2020 festival featuring a degustation of six epic food themed bands
Music in Exile/Bedroom Sucks presents Music at Home – a laid back afternoon of music, poetry and food, centred around ideas of place, identity and international displacement
We are open to different models of partnership, so please tell us what you need from us to make your dream materialise. This might be cold hard cash, production and technical support, or assistance with audience development. All events presented will benefit from the festival marketing campaign.
It’s time to turn to what’s next. We’re listening. What is it that you want to say?
Before applying, please contact Amber Stuart - Brunswick Music Festival Executive Producer at email@example.com or on 9240 2376 to discuss your idea.
