A new music industry campaign has called on the State Government to "stop killing live music in NSW".
The Don't Kill Live Music campaign, which aims to "amplify the voice of Australia’s music community," is asking the NSW Government to:
- Stop killing live music in NSW
- Form a music regulation roundtable to review all regulation impacting live music
- Undertake a Regulatory Impact Statement for any regulation impacting music festivals
- Develop an industry standard with full transparency for user-pays policing and medical services
- Work with the music industry to develop robust, effective and achievable safety protocols for festivals
The campaign comes as a reaction to "overbearing regulation, exorbitant police bills, a lack of respect for NSW businesses, and very little recognition of the significant positive impacts of music on our communities".
Don't Kill Live Music will be holding a rally on Thursday, February 21 at Hyde Park from 6PM.
