Support from government bodies and nonprofit organizations helps develop and promote artists and musicians internationally. Japan sees various events such as Nordic Music Night, Finland Fest and British Anthems thanks to financial assistance from the embassies of the countries involved. Australian support will bring together similar-minded artists from Australia and Japan for the three-day Extremities festival exploring the sonic extremes of the two nations.
The Australian artists will come here with the help of Jolt, a nonprofit and artist-run organization based in Melbourne. The organization’s main goal is to promote and develop Australian and international sound artists and explore new sonic territories.
