Music NOW - Funding for Live Music - Open NOW

The NSW Government through Create NSW and the Office of Responsible Gambling is committing $1million to support the presentation of contemporary live music in NSW.

Objectives

  • Encourage NSW venues to program more live music events

  • Increase audience participation in live music events

  • Support the presentation of original musical work by NSW musicians

  • Increase paid employment opportunities for artists; and
