7-Eleven celebrates Aussie music month with new playlist
The playlist aims to give Aussie artists more airtime and help with some extra income.
7-Eleven said it will exclusively play Aussie music this November across its 700-plus stores as part of a national campaign to celebrate Australian Music Month.
The chain described the initiative as part of its “ongoing commitment to the Australian music community, which kickstarted with Jack River’s call out in August for commercial businesses to better support local artists.”
Curated by commercial streaming partner Qsic, 7-Eleven’s playlist features up and coming and established artists including Jack River, Baker Boy, Ocean Alley and Client Liaison.
“We are very proud to continue celebrating Australian artists in November. Australia has such a wonderful music culture, and getting out to enjoy gigs and venues, with perhaps a sneaky trip to 7-Eleven on the way home, is something our team and customers have really missed in the past 18 months. Being able to give Aussie artists more airtime and help with some extra income is something we were happy to support,” 7-Eleven Australia’s general manager for customer Julie Laycock said in a media release.
