Please read the Live Music Australia Grant Guidelines and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) thoroughly before applying.
Please note that Live Music Australia cannot fund an activity that has already occurred. The activity that you are seeking funding for cannot commence or take place prior to entering into a grant agreement with the Commonwealth. To allow for the assessment process, and if successful, the time to negotiate a grant agreement, you should refer to the indicative dates in the guidelines to determine the timeframe for your project.
You should keep a copy of your application and any supporting documentation. Application receipt will be acknowledged via a Smartygrants confirmation email along with an application reference number.
The Australian Government recognises the significant impact of COVID-19 on the Australian live music industry, and the devastating effects caused by the closure of live music venues and the cancellation of concerts, gigs and tours. In response to this unprecedented situation, funding under this program in 2020-21 will include the opportunity to apply for support for activities that allow live music venues to be ready to re-open and assist in the recovery and re-booting of the sector.
Please refer to the program guidelines which have been adjusted to reflect the impact of COVID-19.
