Information sessions November 2023. Live performance venues across our cities and regions can now access funding and support for industry best-practice sound management, and to build the capacity for live performance, delivered by Sound NSW and the Office of the 24-Hour Economy Commissioner.
The Venues Unlocked program will generate greater vibrancy in communities, with two streams of funding and support: for live music venues to effectively mitigate and manage sound, and hospitality businesses, such as cafes, bars, breweries and restaurants, looking to diversify and convert to live performance venues.
Stream 1: Soundproofing Grants for Live Music Venues delivered by Sound NSW offers eligible venues up to $100,000 to upgrade their premise’s sound management infrastructure and equipment.
