Michael Christidis is the 28-year-old co-founder of Untitled Group, Australia’s largest independent music & events management company.
Untitled Group’s connection to Australian youth has enabled their rapid rise with the group now operating hundreds of events each year drawing over 350,000 annual attendees.
Since 2018, Michael has appeared on the annual ‘Power50’, recognising him as one of the top 50 most influential figures in the Australian music industry.
Based on his understanding of youth culture, Michael recently launched ‘Untitled Ventures’ & 'Underscore Agency' to support & accelerate the growth of some of Australia’s most promising startups. Their unique model focuses on creating strategic partnerships between events, brands and artists as well as providing access to Untitled's vast national youth audience.
The Untitled Ventures model has experienced strong early success supporting growth across their portfolio companies inc. Mr Yum, Tixel, Gummi Pets & CHARM coral farming technologies.
In addition to Michael’s passion for music & business, he is also a strong believer in businesses ability to drive social change. Untitled Group runs several events each year where 100% of proceeds go to supporting a variety of causes.
The largest of which is ‘Ability Fest’ - the world's first annual music festival aimed to normalise disability. As well as raising funds, Ability Fest hosts specifically designed infrastructure to cater for people of all levels of ability, enabling many patrons (who are often overlooked) the opportunity to experience live music. In its first 3 years the event has raised over $1 million dollars for the Dylan Alcott foundation.
Michael’s goal is to leverage Untitled’s unique connection with young Australians to spark broader awareness of social issues in an approachable and impactful way through music events, entertainment and online media.
