Join the Young People Committee! - MusicNSW

MusicNSW is looking for music-mad young people to be part of the NSW music industry’s next wave 

Applications are now open for the MusicNSW Young People Committee, a volunteer youth-powered task force focused on representing young gig-goers aged 12-25. The YPC works to promote a vibrant all-ages gig-going culture in the state, while developing the skills and career pathways of its members. 

Applications are open to young people aged between 12 and 25.



  • receive mentoring in event programming and production, booking, radio-making, marketing and content; 
  • meet experts working in artist management, publicity, labels, radio and more;
  • gain hands-on experience in putting on shows and working with some rad acts as part of our NEW NOW all-ages gig series; and
  • have the opportunity to work on our other youth-focused projects such as FEEDBACK - a music conference for young people. 

But on top of this you’ll also set the course for the committee’s activities and focus, working as a team to identify opportunities for growing and supporting the all-ages event scene in NSW.



  • be engaged in online music communities;
  • have a good knowledge of local and wider music trends;
  • have ambitions to work in the music industry; and
  • be passionate about improving the all-ages gig-going culture in NSW. 



The YPC will get together for 4 committee meetings across 2020 and will participate in delivering 7 all-ages live music events as part of MusicNSW’s NEW NOW series. 

It is expected that successful applicants will attend a minimum of 

  • 2 committee meetings and
