Vault marks a million!

08 May 2019

Vault marks a million! Image

Art Centre Melbourne’s Australian Music Vault has celebrated one million visitors entering the space since opening its doors to the public just over a year ago.

To commemorate the special occasion, Arts Centre Melbourne CEO Claire Spencer joined beloved Australian band Human Nature in cutting a cake on May 1. The group helped celebrate further with a few vocal performances on the day inside what has become a much loved part of our Arts Precinct.

Andrew Tierney, Michael Tierney, Phil Burton and Toby Allen of Human Nature are currently celebrating 30 years of music and were welcomed into the Australian Music Vault for the time in the Two Way Traffic display with their circa 2000 Motown suits.

“When we set out to establish a space in partnership with the music industry where music lovers could immerse themselves in the rich history of Australian music, we knew it would have a strong and meaningful impact,” Claire Spencer said.

“To have welcomed one million visitors is such an incredible moment for us and we look forward to exploring these stories further for many years to come.”

The free permanent exhibition is a key initiative of the state government’s Music Works strategy and was developed by Arts Centre Melbourne in partnership with the music industry.

Minister for Creative Industries Martin Foley also welcomed the milestone.

“Melbourne is the undisputed home of live music and the incredible success of the Australian Music Vault in such a short time shows just how important music is to this city and Victoria,” he said.
