Face the Music Update!

‘Vote For Me! State Election – the Parties bring it!’
Face The Music add exciting new session to this years event, ‘Vote For Me! State Election – the Parties bring it!’ The contemporary music industry in Victoria has grown up a lot in the last four years. With the live music industry valued at $1 billion, the major parties have put their weight behind the sector, funding Music Victoria and promising everything from contemporary music hubs to export programs if elected. Just a few weeks out from the Victorian State Election, representatives from five political parties come together at Face The Music to talk up their track records of support for the contemporary music industry and outline their vision and policy commitments for the next four years. With Richard Willingham (Fairfax Media Political Correspondent) moderating, the session will feature speakers Hon Edward O’Donohue (Minister for Liquor and Gaming Regulation, Liberal Party), Martin Foley MP (Shadow Arts Minister, ALP), Sue Pennicuik MLC (Victorian Greens), Fiona Patten (Leader, Australian Sex Party) and Kris Schroeder (Leader, The Basics Rock ‘n’ Roll Party) .
