With Music Victoria's membership drive currently underway, a number of music identities have through their support behind Victoria's peak body for contemporary music.

The likes of Kylie Minogue, The Temper Trap, Paul Kelly, Adalita, Dan Sultan, Children Collide and M-Phazes have put their name to the drive, dubbed 'Jump On The Bandwagon.'

Kylie Minogue said today, “Australia has a proud reputation as a source of live music talent, launching the careers of a disproportionate number of hugely successful bands and artists from Dame Nellie Melba to Gotye.

“Melbourne has often been credited as the live music capital of Australia, and with good reason. Music Victoria was formed to actively encourage and support this tradition of live music. Since their formation only three years ago the organisation has already made major inroads as the voice of Melbourne's music scene. I am proud to be able to lend my support to the good work they do."

Melbourne's reputation as one of the great musical cities of the world.”

The membership drive runs until Monday 30 April. Stakeholders and supporters of the music scene can sign up here.
