So, who are going to be the next musical stars to emerge from Brisbane? Who fill be following in the footsteps of our most recent musical success stories? Brisbane has been the breeding ground for so many great musicians for so many years that it is always exciting to discover the next batch of talented young music industry professionals. Well, the best place to start a journey of musical discovery is the Student Showcase at the Music Industry College in Fortitude Valley.
