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.
What does MP Music Network do?
We advocate on behalf of our local music community, actively supporting its development and promoting diverse and accessible contemporary music.
Who does MP Music Network work with?
We work with Mornington Peninsula Shire Council and with Music Victoria to benefit our local music community.
MP Music Network was created in 2010 from a concept formed at the Peninsula Music Scene Community Forum, and incorporated in 2012.
We are a team of passionate volunteers who actively support and promote the Mornington Peninsula contemporary music scene through our website, our social media channels and at live music events.
We do this via the following methods and initiatives:
- The MP Music Network weekly gig guide
- Email news updates and reminders to members and subscribers
- Feature interviews and articles on musicians and events
- Pop-up marquee at gigs and events
- Help with grant applications for musicians, promoters and venues
- Professional development workshops for musicians
- Ongoing consultation and advocacy
MP Music network has assisted many local events and organisations including:
- Mornington Main Street Festival

MP Music Network continues to diversify our areas of support and engagement. We aim to include more multi-cultural, all-ages and mature age opportunities and focus on artists that produce original material.
We encourage new members to join and participate, bring new ideas and energy. If you are keen to help please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
MP Music Network acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet, live and play; the Bunurong/Boon Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation.
We thank the Mornington Peninsula Shire and Music Victoria for their support and will continue to seek assistance from various organisations on behalf of our community.
