In the May 2006 Federal Budget the Contemporary Music Touring Program was allocated $1 million over four years, starting in 2006-07. This builds on previous funding for contemporary music touring of $1 million over four years from 2002-03.
The Contemporary Music Touring Program will continue to support touring opportunities for Australian musicians, and increase audience access to live Australian contemporary music, particularly in regional and remote Australia.
The Contemporary Music Touring Program includes special assistance for tours to remote communities, through its Touring Remote Areas (TRAX) guidelines.
The outcomes for round 14 are expected to be announced in November 2007. The closing date for Round 15 applications is 5 February 2008 (for tours taking place from 1 July 2008).
