This round of Live Music Australia will again move to focus on live music festivals, to align with industry demand and to continue to support the sustainability of the live music sector and the presentation of more original live music. The definition of live music venuefor this program includes festivals stages.

The objectives of the program are:

  • to support the development, growth and innovation of Australian contemporary live music by increasing performance opportunities for original contemporary music by Australian artists
  • to support a sustainable venue-based live music industry by building professional capacity within venues, and growing and building audiences
  • to support partnerships, collaboration and networks across the Australian live music industry.

The intended outcomes of the program are:

  • assist live music venues as they reopen and begin to redevelop their capacity for hosting live music following the impacts of COVID-19
  • increased Australian live music performances of original Australian music that create a stronger and growing Australian music industry, well positioned for the future
  • more live music venues, that are agile and sustainable, and employ skilled venue professionals
  • engaging the audience, growing and building stronger touring circuits across Australia, creating new domestic markets for Australian music.

To receive funding under Round 7 of the Live Music Australia Program you will need to demonstrate your commitment to hosting a music focused festival, that presents live performances of original music by predominantly Australian artists. Original music is defined as artists playing their own compositions (or written exclusively for the artist by a songwriter).

Multi-disciplinary arts or food festivals in which music is a secondary function are not eligible to apply. Festivals that use multiple venues in a geographical area are eligible to apply, as are festivals that occur for more than one weekend a year. Proposals should demonstrate that activities will provide ongoing benefits to the Australian music sector.
