Queenscliff Music Festival opens its emerging artist grants

Queenscliff Music Festival opens its emerging artist grants

Applications for this year’s Queenscliff Music Festival emerging artist grants open tomorrow.

The program was set up eight years ago to help careers of up-and-coming artists from the Barwon south-west region in Victoria.

The festival is encouraging participates anywhere along the coast from Queenscliff to Warrnambool to Geelong and Colac to apply.

Grants go up as high as $10,000 and can be to record, manufacture and promote new albums, tour the country, develop new skills through training and mentoring and purchase of new equipment.

Deadline to submit proposals online is Saturday, June 30 here.

Andrea Robertson & The Refuge were recipients last year, which they used towards recording of new albums due to be released later this year.

QMF has contributed over $70,000 through the emerging artist grant.

Past recipients include The Murlocs, Yirrmal, Aine Tyrrell, Hollie Joyce, Sweethearts and Rough River.

The Queenscliff Music Festival 2018 will be held from November 23-25.

According to its website, last year it reached an audience of 100,000.
