This will be a party to end all parties
Melbourne Music Week (MMW) will be returning this year with a massive line-up of international and local performers.

MMW will take over the city and will feature 85 events, 250 performers, and be on for nine full days of fabulous music. There will be "headline gigs to multi-sensory experiences", and this year's program has seen the MMW organisers get the very best promoters, labels, venues and independent producers to bring you a fabulous program.

It will be on from 16th November to 24th November 2018 and it will be held at several venues around Federation Square, Flinders Street. It will be on all day from the Monday to all day on the Sunday 24th. It will be an event with DJs, selectors and jazz musicians and club music.

Crown Ruler are party specialists, and they will be presenting a special night of international sounds featuring DJ's from jazz, funk, tropicalia, enthusiastic Gilles Peterson, along with local performances by Swooping Duck, Mandarin Dreams All Stars, Crown Ruler Sound System and Lori.

Gilles Peterson is a very prolific DJ, in both jazz and club music, and is the man behind BBC1's Worldwide radio and Brownswood Recordings. This is a record label based in England and they are interested in the new sounds of London's modern jazz scene. They are one of the most highly regarded interviewers in forward-thinking music.

Jeff Mills Cinemix will be on from 8.00 pm to 10.50 pm. Since the year 2000, Jeff Mills has been "moving beyond the realms of DJ" and has been composing for film. He did the soundtrack for Fritz Lang's 1929 masterpiece, Woman in the Moon and this is an incredible introduction to his work.

This soundtrack is retro-futuristic and captures the mood of the film perfectly. This will be a debut of his work in Woman in the Moon and is exclusive to MMW where Jeff Mills will play live in this very special screening.

It is presented by ACMI and Melbourne Music Week in association with the Goethe-Institut and Stable Music. Tickets are $45, and you can book them here and also read more about the event at that link.
