Live Music Revolution

Live Music Revolution

The Live Music Revolution was a forum held to address the health of Australia's live music industry. Targeted to hoteliers but open to any interested party attending S3 Open Day, the forum featured an expert panel including: Bill Healey, Director National Affairs AHA; Anthony Ball, Executive Manager Policy & Government, Clubs NSW; Michael Morrison, Global Marketing Trends expert; and John Hart, Chief Executive, Restaurant & Catering Australia. They lead a discussion and information session on live music - why, how, now and the opportunities going forward. The Live Music Revolution was a must for anyone interested in hearing how to put the 'live' back in live music and to promote the community, cultural and economic benefits of live music.
