Track: Young Franco - About This Thing
Sydney’s music industry professionals usually get their ‘kicks’ from discovering new talent, releasing music, running festivals, promoting, publicising or going on tour. But for one priceless networking day of the year, a number of highly respected music companies will turn on their ‘out of office’ and head to Marrickville for a day of football and fundraising – MUSICA COPA!
Yep, the Australian music industry’s beloved charity 5-a-side football tournament is proudly back at it, celebrating their fifth anniversary, on Friday 1st December, at the pristine pitches of the KIKOFF Soccer Centre, Marrickville. On top of 21 legendary music crews (see below), an all-star line-up of artists will drop their mics to pull on the spikes and play football - celebrity players in previous years have included members of Flight Facilities, The Rubens, DMAs, Motez, Montaigne, What So Not, Nina Las Vegas and many more.
At this community event, spectators are welcome, and will have the opportunity to share a Heineken with their favourite musos (and music industry glitterati!) in the Player's Lounge, as well as carb-load with gourmet burgers from the maestros at Mary's. A selection of DJs (to be announced closer to the event) will be keeping vibes high through to day's end.
The stakes are high and each team will be playing to win money for their nominated charity. Since the event was established in 2013, Musica Copa has raised an incredible $40,000 for charity - with last year’s champions Lucky Ent raising $7000 for the Reach Foundation and runners up Universal Music winning $3000 for Musicians Making A Difference. Head HERE to find out which amazing charities have been nominated this year. This year, Musica Copa hopes to raise even more money for charity thanks in part to generous contributions from our teams and partners Nike, Tito’s Vodka, Heineken, DJ Warehouse, Mary’s Burgers and Recovery Water.
Footy friends and business partners Paul Stix (UNDR Ctrl) and Martin Novosel (Boundary Sounds / Purple Sneakers) are the masterminds behind the passion project Musica Copa, and 2017 is already gearing up to be their most exciting tournament yet.
Says Stix of the social enterprise… “for many people in the music industry (including myself), Musica Copa has become one of the favourite events on the annual calendar. It’s a nice milestone to get to 5 years, and Martin and I are really excited to welcome new teams Spotify, Nike All Stars, Of Leisure and Inertia Music to the tournament. We’re introducing 2 divisions for the first time this year and an improved open mixed team format to encourage even more female players this year. We’re humbled by the support Musica Copa receives from our industry friends, and we hope to raise as much money as we can for this year’s wonderful charities".
Meet the brave Sydney music industry teams who will be pulling on the team jersey and having a kick in the name of charity...
Audiopaxx, BMG, Cattleyard, Falcona, FBi Radio, Future Classic, I OH YOU, Inertia, inthemix, Lucky Ent, MTV Australia, Mushroom Group, Nike All Stars, Of Leisure, Select Music, Sony, Spotify, Sweat It Out x MAKER Agency, UNDR Ctrl, Universal Music, WME.
