Connecting Communities & Culture

If you operate a live music venue that has suffered financial hardship as a result of COVID-19, you may be eligible for funding from the NSW Government’s Live Music Support package. 

This funding helps live music venues stay open and create employment opportunities for musicians, promoters and technicians.

Eligible businesses can apply for funding to be used for operational costs related to running their venue, including, but not limited to, employing musicians and support crew.

Funding amounts will be divided into 3 tiers, based on: 

  • the size and capacity of the venue
  • how much of the venue is used for live music
  • how often the venue held live music events before COVID-19.

For full details of the funding available, read the Live Music Support Package – guidelines

Note: Applications close Monday 19 April 2021.
