Music Australia launches new export fund to amplify global success


Creative Australia’s new dedicated music body, Music Australia, has announced the launch of the new Export Development Fund, which aims to fast track the success of Australian musicians, artists, composers, songwriters, and producers internationally.

This program has been designed to support emerging, breakthrough and established acts and is made available to Australian citizens or permanent residents who are current practicing music professionals, including solo artists, instrumentalists, bands, ensembles, DJ/producers and electronic artists, producers, songwriters and composers.

The aim is to increase the presence of Australian acts at international festivals, elevate the number of headline tours and strengthen collaborations with international artists.

Additionally, it aims to boost global recognition of Australian music through awards nominations, radio airplay, and appearances on streaming and television platforms.

Director of Music Australia Millie Millgate says “Australian artists and music businesses can rarely be sustained by a domestic market alone.”

“By delivering a dedicated funding scheme for Australian music export, Music Australia will play an important role in expediting the profile and success stories of Australia’s future A-list artists and musicians, Grammy winners, festival headliners and celebrated music professionals.”

Creative Australia will be holding an information and question and answer session at 12:30pm AEDT, Tuesday 12 March 2024. More info here.
