FEEDBACK 2022 is here

If you’re aged 12-25 and wondering how to break into the industry, or trying to move your career to the next level, FEEDBACK is THE PERFECT opportunity to learn how to do it – how to get gigs, release music, build a fan base, get airplay, how to work with a publicist, booking agent or manager, or become one yourself. It’s all ahead of you!

FEEDBACK 2022 will be a hybrid of online and in-person sessions. Those in attendance at JMC Academy in Ultimo, Sydney will have access to a wide selection of talks and panels, as well as networking opportunities, while exclusive video content and live-streaming of the conference's main attractions will be available online, so you can tune in wherever you are!

This is a Covid safe event. Event attendees are required to be able to produce proof of vaccination.

Hosted by rapper and activist DOBBY, FEEDBACK 2022 will be loaded with opportunities to ask questions, listen to the best industry advice, network with other emerging artists and meet industry pros from record labels, radio, and more.

At the top of this lineup are two very special keynote addresses. The first from Malyangapa, Barkindji woman and hip-hop phenom BARKAA. She's been impressing at home and overseas with features in GQ, airplay on rage and triple j, a stellar live performance at the Sydney Opera House, billboards in Times Square and being crowned #YouTubeBlack voice of 2022.

The second comes from powerhouse songwriter and perfomer Kira Puru. Landing #75 in the triple j Hottest 100 with her release “Molotov", she has gone from strength to strength accumulating over 9 million streams across her catalogue.
