Don’t worry if your favourite venue is not on the list. There are plenty more venues to be announced across the state with the second round of announcements.

We’re helping every one of these venues cover the bills, plan for the future, and get ready to open their doors again through our Live Music Venue Grants. $9 million has been allocated in the first round – with more venues to be announced. Victoria has always been the live music capital of Australia. And we’ll make sure it stays that way.
