Ausmusic Month

Every November since launch, we’ve participated in ABC’s Ausmusic Month.

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

What is Australian Played?

Australian Played utilises the commercial reach of Nightlife Music - Australia’s largest music subscription service for business – and their consumer jukebox app crowdDJ to encourage consumers to pick Australian artists in venues across the country.

Nightlife Music has a reach over six million people across thousands of locations including bars, pubs, gyms, restaurants, retail accommodation, leisure and major events.

Why Australian Played?

The Australian Played, Australian Paid concept was devised to make it easier to find and hear your favourite music as well as support homegrown talent whether new, independent, classic, rock, jazz or favourites. Every time a song plays through Nightlife an artist gets paid.
