Following a meeting yesterday with advisers to the NSW Government, MusicNSW, alongside the Australian Festival Association, Live Performance Australia, APRA AMCOS and Live Music Office, have released a new joint statement.
MusicNSW, the Australian Festival Association, Live Performance Australia, APRA AMCOS and the Live Music Office have formed an industry coalition to voice concerns about the NSW’s changes to music festival licensing regulations.
Removal of “draconian” live music venue and festival regulations and increased funding for arts and music are among the official new music policies from the NSW Greens.
NSW Opposition Leader Michael Daley and Shadow Minister for Music and the Night Time Economy John Graham have launched NSW Labor’s full contemporary music policy!
New party policies from Keep Sydney Open have addressed growing concerns around music festival regulations and live music investment, ahead of the NSW state election on March 23rd.
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”.
MusicNSW has launched a number of resources to help music lovers and the industry understand the current political situation in NSW and #VoteMusic on March 23!
Held in Redfern, Wollongong, Newcastle, Parramatta and Katoomba, these workshops will help first-time grant writers understand the requirements of government grants.
Under 25 and love music? Help shape the future of the music industry!
MusicNSW is stoked to support these awesome all-ages music events across the state!
