Returning for its fourth year, Australian Music Week has opened showcase applications for the 2018 music conference, which takes place 7-11 November in Sydney's chilled-out beachside shores of Cronulla.

Scouting the world to bring in top-notch talent buyers, from festival directors to record labels, radio pluggers and management, Australian Music Week director, Geoff Trio said the team is more excited than ever to open this year's applications for showcasing artists.

"Australian Music Week is unique in that it is still relatively small, which makes it so much easier for artists and industry to genuinely connect, with actual on-the-ground discoveries and new deals happening over the days of the conference.

"As well as bringing in representatives from Australia's leading festivals and organisations, we have brokered powerful partnerships with a number of international events who will come to Australian Music Week to discover acts for launching into markets like North America, Asia and Europe.

"The opportunities are real and so are the great results we're seeing grow year on year."

Past editions have seen artists like Ruby Fields, Hein Cooper, Skegss, Diesel, The Audreys, Hollow Coves and William Crichton pick up international tours, major festival placements, record and distribution deals, international touring and showcasing opportunities.

Taking place over five days, Australian Music Week showcases over 150 performances across a wide range of genres, presents more than 20 panels addressing the latest industry issues with leading Australian and international figures, as well as hosts a Music Film Festival and the annual Folk, Americana and Country Music Conferences.

Past speakers include Peter Noble (Bluesfest), Gregg Donavon (Wonderlick), Mama Kin, Chloe Goodyear (Woodford Folk Festival) and Jed Hilly (Americana) with delegates from New World Artists, MGM, ABC Music and more in regular attendance searching for new talent.

Showcase applications now open at www.australianmusicweek.com with the first round of delegates and speakers to be announced soon.
