Regional Arts Development Central West NSW
LIVE & KICKING
Supporting local musicians and music venues with live gigs of original music

Our LIVE AND KICKING program is region-wide and focuses on live, local, original music; continuing to build a touring circuit; and supporting the venues that have a strong commitment to music events.

The program is funded by the Australian government’s Live Music Australia.

The program aims to bolster the Central West’s live music industry at a difficult time.

Full and part-time musicians across the region have lost numerous gigs due to the pandemic, so we wanted to ensure they’re receiving as much support as possible.

Here’s a story about the program from Prime7.
