The Australian Music Association is excited for the return of the Melbourne Guitar Show, set to rock Caulfield Racecourse on August 3 and 4, 2019 – and this year’s show is set to be colossal.  Proudly presented by Triple M, Australian Musician, PBS and media partners Noise11 and Beat/Mixdown, the lineup boasts an impressive haul of both local and international artists.  In addition to the world-class performances from the artists on the massive lineup, #MGS2019 will also hold a huge gear expo that will feature a gigantic variety of electric and acoustic guitars, effects pedals, amps and more state-of-the-art guitar technology, both home-grown and from around the world.  See, try and buy!  It will continue to be Australia’s biggest guitar pop-up shop, as well as hosting information seminars, demonstrations, and live performances from Australia’s most talented guitarists.

Drawing thousands of guitar lovers and enthusiasts to the 2018 Melbourne Guitar Show, #MGS2019 is growing year on year and is gearing up for the biggest event yet.  Champion of the Australian music products industry, Australian Music Association (AMA) will be teaming up with australianmusician.com.au and presenting sponsors Triple M, 3PBS, Noise11 and Beat/Mixdown to present this year’s guitar-centric weekend.  At last year’s show, punters not only enjoyed scheduled performances and demos from the awesome artists on the lineup, but also witnessed surprise on-stand appearances from some of Australia’s finest artists, including Harts, Darren Middleton (Powderfinger), Bec Sandridge, Dan Sultan and many more.  Both the organisers and the exhibitors are constantly wrangling acts right up until the very last minute – and who will be joining the all-star jam this year? Come on down and find out!

Thrilled to present #MGS2019 once again, AMA executive officer and MGS organiser, Rob Walker says, “It’s exciting to see the show develop each year and add value to the live music industry.  We are proud to present such a broad range and quality of guitars, amps and gear from the big brands to local artisans.  And each year we get to put together a program of live music featuring the considerable talents of our guitar community.  It’s a great weekend for anyone into music, particularly guitars.”

Rob continues, “And not only will the #MGS2019 provide a hands-on chance to see and play such a broad range of gear, there’ll be bargains a plenty.  We like to call it Australia’s biggest pop up guitar store!”
