Continuing the spirit throughout the day

The team at Nightlife have created the Anzac Day music list, a carefully curated selection of appropriate music you can schedule to play following services or for dedicated events in your venue. 

With artists like Eric Bogle, John Williamson and Redgum, it offers a nice, commemorative soundtrack to follow on from The Last Post and The Ode. 

If you also want to feature more Australian and New Zealand artists in your venue on this important day, you can queue some of our other local content, like our AUSSIE or NZ BAR TUNES lists. 

For a guide on how to activate any of these in your venue, click here. 

TIP: The above link also includes instructions on how you can press pause on your existing music programming for Anzac Day, while you switch to more commemorative music and visuals.

Managing your screens on Anzac Day 

Nightlife enables venues to program informative and commemorative slides to display on screen at any time, including for special or important events. 

Whether you’d like to set one slide to stay up for the duration of Anzac day or intersperse slides with special messages about your planned services, there is something for everyone. 

Themed digital signage provided by Nightlife can be found and programmed to display in the Digital Advertising Library via the Manage My Nightlife web app.
