What is MP Music Network?
We are an independent, not-for-profit organisation that represents musicians, venues, music businesses and music lovers from Mornington Peninsula’s contemporary music community.
MP Music Network was created in 2010 from a concept formed at the Peninsula Music Scene Community Forum, and incorporated in 2012,
The MP Music Network website showcases and is a forum for events on the Mornington Peninsula promoting local weekly gigs and some of the first class festivals which happen regularly to entertain people of all walks of life, of all ages and tastes in music on the Mornington Peninsula.
MP Music Network promotes the local music scene through, Email subscription, Gig and Event listings in the online Gig Guide and extensively across the local Social Media network and in the monthly issue of “Mornington Peninsula Magazine” along with feature interviews on local musicians. MP Music Network has recently been granted funds from the Mornington Peninsula Shire to create a Pop Up V.I.P tent to be present at local events, supporting musicians and providing visitors and music lovers with information on the local music scene.
