The Australian Music Vault opened in December 2017 and was pitched as a way to celebrate the legacy of Australian music. The exhibition space, which is located inside Arts Centre Melbourne, held a year-long celebration of Australia's rock'n'roll past and in 2019 decided to shake things up a bit with a new exhibition dedicated to Australian hip hop.
Currently, the Australian Music Vault is showcasing how this popular genre has evolved since its introduction in the 1980s to where it stands today.
Included in the exhibition will be a display of costumes, microphones, awards and rare records from over 30 Australian hip hop artists and labels, including Melbourne’s rising hip hop star Baker Boy and Sydney’s veteran MC and producer, Urthboy.
Keep an eye out for exciting events happening at the Vault including hip hop lyric writing workshops for teenagers with hip hop artist N'Fa Jones.
