Turning up the volume on live music funding

Local governments looking to stage original live music and festivals can apply for a new round of funding through Live Music Australia.

The $20 million Live Music Australia program aims to bring music to more Australians by supporting organisations to professionally stage original live music, including in regional areas.

Round 7 is open for applications for live music and concerts presenting predominantly home-grown music.  The funding can support a range of activities including sound, lighting, staging costs, accessible facilities, marketing and noise attenuation.

Applications close 17 October 2023.
