Do you make music and wish you could hear it on a big sound system?

Playback creates a space for music makers to hear their works on an amplified sound system in a supportive and educational setting.

Many music makers don't get the opportunity to hear how their sounds will translate in final environments such as clubs, cinemas, or under heavy amplification. This is because access to larger systems, such as those found in clubs, are hard to come by. Playback aims to bring this opportunity to the Melbourne music community whilst facilitating the opportunity to share with, learn from, and connect with peers.

Anyone is welcome to submit a track to Playback. We welcome music makers of all abilities, genres, and backgrounds to the program. Even if you are not submitting music we welcome you to join a session to see what it's all about or support a friend.

Our aim is to lift the community and allow music makers to improve their practice by listening in a new environment.
