A Major Music Expo ’08

Thursday October 30 – Newcastle City Hall – 9:00am to 7:30 pm

Once more A Major Music Expo will bring the National Music Experts to town and Newcastle City Hall will come to life with the cool sounds of music. Newcastle Music Week brings professionals from all around Australia to the city to share their love and knowledge of music.

Workshops will take place throughout the day and a series of master classes will be held early evening. Expo Hall will be abuzz with demonstrations by major music retailers and music companies.

Your most difficult task will be trying to decide which workshop to attend. Workshops for 08 include drums, vocals, self management, bass guitar, publicity, journalism, hip hop and many others relevant to today’s music industry. A series of master classes will also be held.

Guest presenters for 2008 include Mark Gable (Choirboys), Brett Garsed (international guitarist), Sophie Howarth (Music Photographer), Nick Milligan (Reverb Street Press), Kathryn Holloway (publicist Groovin The Moo), Don and David Sleishman and many more.

Attention all artists – you will be pleased to learn that the listening seminar is back. Artists will be invited to submit their demos and then five of these will be randomly selected. The songs will be reviewed by a listening panel made up of A & R reps, agents and publishers, who will offer advice on what the professional industry is looking for.
