Round two of the Live Music Australia program that is designed to assist in the national recovery of the live music sector from the impacts of COVID-19 is now open for applications. Round two will again provide support to small to medium venues, as they begin to reopen and resume the regular performance of original Australian live music. Applications for round two will close on 18 February 2021.
The Australian Government invests around $750 million in the arts and cultural sector each year through a diverse range of programs. This program is part of the $30.9 million Australian Music Industry Package announced in March 2019.
