Bush Bands

Bush Bands Applications Now Open

15 Apr

Applications are now open for MusicNT’s 2014 Bush Bands Program, the premier contemporary music program for Indigenous musicians in Central Australia. It combines the three-day skills development camp Bush Bands Business 3 – 5 September and the 11th annual Bush Bands Bash on 6 September – a foot-stomping concert in front of thousands in Alice Springs. In 2013 more than 60 Indigenous musicians from Central Desert communities were involved in the program and participated in workshops with leading music professionals including representatives from APRA/AMCOS, Arts Law, Country Arts WA, Charles Darwin University and more. The bands then performed in front of more than 3,000 people at the Bush Bands Bash with thousands more tuning in from home through Live Streaming and CAAMA Radio broadcasts. This year’s set to be even bigger, so apply now.
