Industry leaders, professionals and music passionates from around the world will come together at the Abbotsford Convent for two glorious days in July for CHANGES Festival, a music summit investigating the future of local and international music.

With a program choc full of MUSIC, TECH, TALKS and IDEAS, PBS is pleased to present a workshop aimed at sharing our bountiful interviewing tips and techniques.

Join interview masters, Maddy MacFarlane and Rick Howe to learn everything from interview organising and press releases, through to promotion and actually doing the interview!

Maddy Mac has presented her PBS show Homebrew for over a decade with a focus on showcasing and supporting homegrown and independent bands. She's passionate about community, radio and community radio and has been involved in many projects supporting the vitality of music communities across genres.
