The State Of Music.

Mushroom Group and industry legend Michael Gudinski have teamed up with the Victorian Government for a brand new weekly isolation music series.

The initiative, The State Of Music (to coincide with the state Government's announcement today of Victoria Together) will see exclusive artist performances and interviews from Australia's brightest and biggest names which will be livestreamed every Sunday night from 7.30pm.

Kicking off this weekend (3 May), episode one will feature appearances from Birds of Tokyo, Diesel, G Flip, James Reyne and Gudinski, with host Rosie Beaton.

“After the success of Music From The Home Front I’m thrilled to be a part of Premier Daniel Andrews’ and the Victorian Government’s vision to deliver Australian music into people’s lounge rooms each week," Gudinski said.

“Melbourne is one of the great music cities in the world and the leading music city in Australia. While we are currently unable to experience music in Victoria’s celebrated live venues this great initiative will play a part in ensuring our musicians and those that work in the music industry have a future.”

Premier Andrews added, "Victorians have done the right thing by staying at home, and we’re thanking them by bringing them the best of Victoria’s creative talents to their living rooms.

“We’re proudly the cultural capital of Australia and we’ll do everything we can to support our creative industries through this pandemic, so they’re in the best position to support the many thousands of jobs that rely on this sector.”
