The Live Music Australia program is part of the Australian Music Industry Package, announced on 30 March 2019. The program is designed to bring more live music to Australian communities and will fund applications that support quality original Australian live music that is professionally staged, with a focus on small to medium venues.
Applications to the program may include:
- infrastructure upgrades, purchase of equipment, programming and promotional expenses and artist fees, or
- initiatives that deliver to multiple venues and build capacity, for example, professional development programs, expanded regional touring circuits, and partnerships across venues or jurisdictions.
Applications open December 14, 2020 and close February 18, 2021 23:45 AEDT
