This special issue derives from the conference Policy Notes: Popular Music, Industry and the State hosted by the issue editors in Melbourne, 18-20 June 2012. The conference marked the completion of a three-year Australian Research Council project, Policy Notes: Local Popular Music in Global Creative Economies that examined popular music policy in Scotland, New Zealand and Australia. The issue offers several case studies examining how local music-making has become part of creative industries practices and policies, and the challenges faced by the music industries and governments in the funding, regulation and management of popular music.
