Some Good News for Aussie Venues:
On the 11th of August the Australian Government announced their support in helping small to medium sized venues to host live original Australian music.
The Live Music Australia program will provide support to the live music sector, with a focus on small to medium venues that support high quality original Australian live music that is professionally staged. It aims to revive business ventures in local suburbs, towns and regions across the country, building capacity for a sustainable live music scene with strong community roots, in all parts of Australia.
The first year of funding is aimed at preparing live music venues to become operational following the impacts of COVID-19 on the industry.
Applications are open until 13 September 2020 and can be made through the Australian Government online grants system, ‘SmartyGrants’
