Brunswick Music Festival Announces New Music Programmer

We are thrilled to announce the appointment of our new Music Programmer, Emily Ulman, for the 2019 festival and beyond.

The role combines programming the two weeks of Brunswick Music Festival, Sydney Road Street Party, the festival’s free opening event, and four Friday nights of Coburg Night Market in the lead up to Christmas.

Bringing new ideas to the fore and taking the program in an exciting direction, Ulman’s vision will build on the festival’s reputation and long history whilst giving it a refreshing shake up that is set to redefine how people see the event.

Applying industry experience, knowledge of the local and international scene and a commitment to both community and diversity, Ulman’s program will give the festival a welcome shot in the arm.

Ulman is a talented venue booker, producer, publicist, entertainment manager, musician, Bulldogs fan and highly respected contributor to the local music community.

For over 15 years she has curated stages and shows at venues across Melbourne, notably The Prince Bandroom, The Post Office Hotel, The Kelvin Club, Boney, The Toff in Town and The Gasometer Hotel and has produced numerous special events including the first ever live music program for White Night Melbourne in 2013 and The Fitz Ritz in 2017.

After two excellent years, the festival’s Music Programmer for 2017 and 2018, Chelsea Wilson, has moved on to the role of Producer at MLIVE, a music and arts program across five venues led by Executive Director Paul Grabowksy AO, based out of the Ian Potter Centre of Performing Arts, Monash University.

Stay tuned for more exciting announcements about the 2019 festival in the coming months!
