2015 Spotlight on Australia

australia-header-sign Australia, with a population of 22 million, has long been considered the natural trading partner for Canada’s music industry. Currently ranked by RIN as 7th behind the U.S., Japan, Germany, UK, France and Canada, it represents 3% of the world music market. Australia’s live music industry contributes $1.1 billion to the Australian economy, proving that this industry is booming. Australia Report 2015 Page 1CAAMA, in association with Canadian Music Week, is helping Canadian artists and labels take the guesswork out of breaking into Australia and New Zealand. From May 6-9, 2015, at Canadian Music Week in Toronto, we will be bringing in label reps, agents, promoters, and industry reps from various sectors to share their expertise and insights with Canadians on entering these two lucrative markets as part of a Spotlight on Australia and Focus on New Zealand. In advance of these spotlights, CAAMA has commissioned a report on Australia and New Zealand outlining their music markets as well as opportunities for Canadian artists and companies to do business. With funding support provided by the Ontario Media Development Corporation and the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada, we were able to produce an in-depth overview of the two territories and are now pleased to share these findings with our members and the industry at large. We anticipate the report will serve as an invaluable resource in your preparations for the Spotlights as well as any future relations with these markets.
