Live music grants program now open

Monday, 20 May 2019

Council’s live music grants program aims to strengthen the Inner West as Sydney’s live music destination.

The program provides financial support for musicians to undertake professional development and for venues to increase the number of live music performances on offer.

Funding is available under two grant categories:

  • Musician development grants of up to $5,000 to encourage the professional development of local musicians to assist in gaining performance opportunities and promotion.
  • Venue capacity building grants of up to $20,000 are offered to increase local venues’ capacity to offer live music performances to enable new and existing local venues to become thriving community hubs.

Council has undertaken a range of actions to support local live music and night-time economies including with the provision of a live music planning liaison service.

The live music grants program opens at 9am on Thursday, 9 May and closes at 5pm on Sunday, 26 May.

Applications must be submitted via Council’s Smarty Grants webpage.
