Calling all bands, producers, singer-songwriters, film-makers and creatives under 25!

Decibels Indie is an inclusive dynamic space which supports young emerging artists to develop the networks and connections needed to become independent artists. With access to professional music facilities and equipment, including the Decibels recording studio, participants receive professional mentoring, specialised workshops and project funds of up to $1,000.

To apply, tell us about your music or creative project that you are wanting to get off the ground. This could be recording an EP of original songs, creating a film clip or video, getting a band together, organising a special event or various marketing initiatives.

Applications are judged on potential, enthusiasm and how well the project is thought out; not how developed, good or popular a band/act is right now. Applications are assessed for intake 4-5 times a year.
