Scene News: Celebrating Ten Years of Milk! Records – Double Digits – Double Cities – Double The Fun

Pop out the party poppers – this December Milk! Records celebrate ten years with a line-up of stellar parties across Naarm/Melbourne and Eora/Sydney. Featuring performances from a slew of Milk! artists as well as special performances from label friends.

Milk! Records was founded in 2012 to release Courtney Barnett’s first EP ‘I’ve Got a Friend Called Emily Ferris’. Since then, Milk! Records has championed and released over 60 titles in the last decade, supporting local independent artists as well as internationally established acts.

Milk!’s roster includes Australian artists Courtney Barnett, Jen Cloher, Dyson Stringer Cloher, Hachiku, Liz Stringer, The Finks, Jade Imagine, Mess Esque, Loose Tooth, and East Brunswick All Girls Choir as well as international artists Sleater-Kinney, Chastity Belt, Hand Habits, Tiny Ruins and Bachelor.

Milk! has always strived to be a queer and queer-friendly community of artists and arts workers who share their experience, time, resources and presence to transform the music industry into a space of collaboration, discovery, inclusion, and independence. Milk! Records is committed to building relationships based on mutual trust and consent.

“It’s amazing and overwhelming to look back   and see how much Milk! has grown over ten years. We are incredibly grateful to everyone who has supported the label along the way, thank you for helping us make so many wonderful memories and share so many beautiful albums! I’m looking forward to what comes next, but for now I’m really excited to celebrate this moment with Milk! & Friends in December. See you at the shows! CB x”

Join the fun at one of the shows with performances from Milk artists and friends, and keep your eyes peeled for more celebratory news to come!
