Melbourne Guitar Show Announces 2016 Return

After a resoundingly successful show in 2015, the Melbourne Guitar Show will return to the Caulfield Racecourse in August this year, with full details to be released soon.

Musicians and fans alike will flock to the event, which is tipped to be even bigger than the 2015 incarnation, which saw over 5,000 people through the door. The floor plan has been extended to accommodate more performers, more fans and an acoustic only level, for those who prefer the quieter side of all things six-string.

With acts like Jeff Lang, Geoff Achinson and Lloyd Spiegel playing last year, it will be hard to top, but there is reason to get excited according to the Australian Music Association.

There’s a groundswell of industrial excitement surrounding the event, with plans in the works to bring some major acts down under to play at the show. They will also pull from the local talent pool for performances, and will profile more of the artists who play.

On the success of 2015’s Melbourne Guitar Show, AMA president Tony Burn said, “Our post show exhibitor survey was emphatic with over 90% of our patrons thinking the show was great. The industry received a well-overdue boost in confidence from the positive results of the show.”

It all goes down From Friday August 5 to Sunday August 7 at Caulfield Racecourse. Head to Melbourne Guitar Show for more details.
