LIVE & KICKING
Supporting local musicians and music venues with live gigs of original music

Our LIVE AND KICKING program will be region-wide and focus 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 has secured funding as part of the Australian government’s Live Music Australia program.

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 want to ensure they’re receiving as much support as possible.

Here’s a story about the program from Prime7.
