Grant Background: The Live Music Australia program will provide support to the live music sector, with a focus on small to medium venues that support high quality original Australian live music that is professionally staged.

- support the development, growth and innovation of Australian contemporary live music by increasing performance opportunities for original contemporary music by Australian artists
- support a sustainable venue-based live music industry by building professional capacity within venues
- support partnerships, collaboration and networks across the Australian live music industry.
