The Australian Music Association has announced the 2019 return of the Melbourne Guitar Show, set to rock Caulfield Racecourse on August 3 and 4.  

Proudly presented by Triple M and Australian Musician, the line-up boasts an impressive haul of both local and international artists. In addition to world class performances from the artists on this massive lineup, #MGS2019 will also present a massive gear expo that will feature a huge variety of electric and acoustic guitars, effects pedals, amps and more state-of-the-art guitar technology, both home-grown and from around the world.  It will continue to be Australia’s biggest guitar pop-up shop, and that’s not all.  The Melbourne Guitar Show will host information seminars, demonstrations, and live performances from Australia’s most talented guitarists.

The first line-up announcement for #MGS2019 includes a great mix of guitar talent including Keith Merrow and Dennis Jones, both from the USA, who will join the usual eclectic and star-studded local list which this year features; Lloyd Spiegel, Sara McLeod, Ash Grunwald, the legendary Stars; featuring Mal Eastick, Nick Charles, and Roger McLachlan, plus Minnie Marks, Phil Manning, Chris Finnen, Ash Grunwald, James Norbert Ivanyi, Jeremy Barnes, Simon Hosford, Michael Dolce and many more. Visit the Melbourne Guitar Show site which can be found at for the latest show additions.

Drawing nearly 5000 guitar lovers and enthusiasts last year, the Melbourne Guitar Show is growing year on year and is gearing up for the biggest event yet.  Champion of the Australian music products industry, the Australian Music Association (AMA) will be teaming up with and sponsors Triple M & 3PBS to present this year’s guitar-centric weekend.  At last year’s show, punters not only enjoyed scheduled performances and demos from the awesome lineup of artists, but also witnessed surprise on-stand appearances from some of Australia’s finest artists. Seen at MGS 2018 were: Harts, Darren Middleton, Bec Sandridge, Dan Sultan and many more. We also saw some great examples of Australian lutherie and amp and FX builders, alongside the world’s major brands. 

Thrilled to present #MGS2019 once again, AMA executive officer and MGS organiser, Rob Walker says, “It’s exciting to see the show develop each year and add value to the live music industry. We are proud to present such a broad range and quality of guitars, amps and gear from the big brands to local artisans. And each year we get to put together a program of live music featuring the considerable talents of our guitar community. It’s a great weekend for anyone into music, particularly guitars.”

“And not only will the #MGS2019 provide a hands-on chance to see and play such a broad range of gear, there’ll be bargains a plenty”, he added. “We like to call it Australia’s biggest pop up guitar store!”

The Melbourne Guitar Show will be held at Caulfield Racecourse on August 3 and 4.
