Our Story So Far
The MPMN is supported by volunteers, local businesses and the Mornington Peninsula Shire
MP Music Network was created in 2010 from a concept formed at the Peninsula Music Scene Community Forum, and incorporated in 2012,
The MPMN launched their recently updated Website in November 2018, So members can list their Venues, Bands or local music-related industries to advertise and promote the Peninsula’s diverse musical scene! MPMN also opened up an Instagram account and updated the weekly Gig Guide.
The MPMN website also 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.
The MPMN 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. MPMN 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.
The MPMN is involved with and supports many local events including:

MPMN continues to diversify our areas of support and engagement, to include more multi-cultural and mature age opportunities
We encourage new members to join and participate, bringing new ideas, energy, dynamism, evolving in the years ahead, with community groups, coming together
in new initiatives, under the one MPMN umbrella, to cultivate our great music scene within Victoria, nationally and beyond!
