This July, the contemporary music summit CHANGES and its live music programme will together spark discussions across the realms of music, tech, talks and ideas.

In its second year, the CHANGES conference welcomes the music world to Melbourne (3-4 July) to interrogate the current state of the music industry.

On the conference side of CHANGES, global leaders in music, technology and innovation will guide in-depth discussions about the future of the industry, along with mentors, experts and storytellers whose experiences will inform the direction of the music sector.

This year, CHANGES delegates will hear from the forward-thinking managers and agents behind some of the world’s most popular artists, including Anna Benefield (Panache Booking), Lucy Beach (Paradigm Talent Agency), Matthew Langille (People’s Champ Management) and Cameo Carlson President of MTheory, an artist-first management company that works with the likes of FKA Twiggs, Diplo, Kacey Musgraves and A$AP Rocky.

The CHANGES 2019 live music programme shines a light on the Fitzroy area, with over 20 labels, agencies and music organisations curating acts across ten venues bordering Johnston and Brunswick streets over two nights.

Alex Macfarlane, Alice Skye, Allara, Civic, DRMNGNOW, Elizabeth, Good Morning, Gordon Koang, Hexdebt, Jess Ribeiro, Laneous, Melody Pool, Miss Blanks, Mojo Juju, Palm Springs, Philly, Porpoise Spit, SaD, Spike Vincent, These New South Whales and Summer Flake are among the 100+ artists showcasing in 2019.

There is also a full roster of one-on-one meetings, group workshops and masterclasses designed for attendees to initiate important conversations and develop essential skills.

Returning to the programme after its successful launch during its inaugural year is 'Hear Me Out', the interactive listening session that invites participants to play their music to a selection of experts and receive real-time feedback.

'Focused Interactions' is a fluid networking session open to all CHANGES attendees. It’s your chance to prepare and meet face-to-face with a number of industry professionals including record labels, booking agents, managers, publishers, media and promoters.

CHANGES is on at Abbotsford Convent (Melbourne), 3-4 July.
