Each November, Nightlife Music participates in ABC’s Ausmusic Month — a celebration of Australian music.

This year, Nightlife invites clients, artists, industry partners, and music lovers to show their support for Australian artists in venues across Australia.

Why do we care about Ausmusic Month?

Our Ausmusic Month campaign shines a spotlight on homegrown talent, getting artists played and paid.

"It’s very hard to make a living as a musician in Australia - even harder since the beginning of the pandemic. There is only a very small percentage of bands and artists that can sustain themselves and often only for a limited period of time.

Aussies are looking closely at how they are rebuilding after the pandemic, and often its about being conscious of helping those around them. The “Aussies Helping Aussies” mentality is what Ausmusic Month is all about.

We are taking a leading stance within the music industry ecosystem in a sustainable and visible way."

Our Campaign

No matter who you are or what you listen to, you can support Australian Music. Through our Australian Played campaign we're bringing Nightlife clients, artists, industry partners, and music lovers together to celebrate Ausmusic Month.

Any Aussie song that plays through Nightlife will ensure an Aussie artist gets paid. Music lovers can help by looking for the Australian Played logo when they are choosing their music with our free jukebox app crowdDJ.

We’ll also be doing our bit to put Australian music centre stage, by adding more Australian artists to our Nightlife and crowdDJ® soundtracks. Our goal is to make sure that no matter where you go, you’ll be hearing more Aussie tunes than ever before.

It doesn’t matter if you’re an avid listener, Aussie artist or a Nightlife client, there are ways we can all help the Australian music industry this November.
