The Venues Unlocked Program aims to increase the number of live performance venues with industry best-practice sound management, build the capacity for live performance, and generate greater vibrancy in communities.

Venues Unlocked is designed to upgrade live music venues and build the capacity of hospitality business (including bars, clubs, breweries, restaurants and cafes) across NSW metropolitan areas and regions.

The Venues Unlocked Program offers funding and support for NSW venues to address sound management challenges and remove the barriers impacting live performance opportunity.

Venues Unlocked has different funding and support streams for new and existing live music venues and hospitality businesses.

The program includes two funding and support streams for established and emerging venues:

Soundproofing Grants: for Live Music Venues: Eligible live music venues can apply for grants of up to $100,000 to enable industry-best practice sound management.

Live Performance Venue Program: A program with two phases, including a Live Performance Venue Accelerator and a Live Performance Venue Grant Program.

The Program is delivered through Sound NSW and the Office of the 24-Hour Economy Commissioner.
