Live music and performance
Revitalising Sydney's cultural life
A diverse offering of live music and performance events in venues ranging from intimate theatre spaces to concert halls will enrich Sydney's cultural life.
With local live music and performance declining in recent years, the City developed its live music and performance action plan in 2014, which aims to support emerging musicians and performance artists to build their careers and audiences through a variety of avenues.
The action plan details the challenges and suggests actions across 4 areas of the live music and performance sector:
Already, we have introduced and provided support to a number of initiatives across the local area:
- venues where students can rehearse free of charge
- providing access to events for people with disability
- hosting seminars about how to get involved in live music
- funding grants to reduce red tape for small, temporary theatre spaces.
As more plans become City programs we will update you in our Creative City Sydney monthly newsletter and will publish more information on this web page.
