A wine brand for the musically minded, Headline Acts connects people together through music via partnerships and industry initiatives for bands and the fans that support them.
Committed to supporting the emerging headliners of the future, Headline Access acts is a platform created with the intention to bolster the careers of independent Australian artists and creatives.
Kicking off the hugely successful first instalment of the Headline Access Industry Rewards Program in May 2022 was The Release Cycle, which offered one emerging artist the opportunity to gain invaluable mentorship from influential Australian music industry names.
Among the panellists included Johann Ponniah of I OH YOU Records, and Johnny Took of DMA’s, The Orchard, with the Sydney session being hosted by journalist Mikey Cahill and music writer Sose Fuamoli, while the New Zealand event sees MC SLAVE from Fat Freddy’s Drop host.
Now, as the official wine partner of Laneway 2023, Headline Access is bringing about the second iteration of the wine aficionados Industry Awards program to the Abercrombie on February 7, where artist and industry-led workshops will aim to give aspiring musos invaluable insight into navigating the music landscape from some of the world’s biggest artists.
An international round-up of talent will lead the intimate sessions, including Baltimore punk five-piece Turnstile and UK Grammy Awards-nominated rapper, Slowthai, alongside workshops led by Australian-bred Berlin-based producer Logic1000, First Nations MC Tasman Keith and New Zealand group, The Beths. You can enter the competition here.
Much more than just a wine, Headline Access is committed to backing Aussie artists and giving back to the music industry and the fans that support it while celebrating and supporting budding local musicians.
Crafted to be enjoyed with great tunes, from backyard hangs to big festivals, Headline Access offers varieties of wine in Rosé Bubbles, Sauvignon Blanc, Rosé, and Shiraz.
On every bottle, you’ll find music-inspired artwork, with a curated Spotify playlist that was fiercely debated and finally agreed upon by musos, DJs, and vinyl junkies alike.
