Live music taskforce
Live music matters
Creating new opportunities for musicians and performers, overcoming obstacles to live music and performance are just some of the key actions that have been recommended by the City of Sydney's Live Music and Performance Taskforce.
The taskforce was set up in December 2012 to investigate why live music and performance in Sydney has been under increasing pressure, and to:
- inform the City of the best ways to support the live music and performance industry
- develop a live music and live performance action plan to address barriers for live music providers and propose solutions to support the sustainability and vibrancy of this sector
- present the draft live music and live performance action plan to Council.
The action plan 'Live Music Matters', available for download below, tackles issues such as regulatory barriers, rehearsal and performance space availability, developing new audiences and providing opportunities for young people to enjoy and play live music.
The taskforce's report recommends the City plan for the future of live music and performance by supporting traditional areas and identifying new areas where live music and performance can be encouraged. You can read more about the key taskforce recommendations in the fact sheet, available for download below.
The action plan was on on public exhibition until 17 January 2014.
