MDO Live Music Support Program

The $3 million Live Music Support Program offers funding through two categories for dedicated live music venues, music specific event promoters and professional touring artists and crew, to support them to resume live music activity once national and international borders re-open.

Category 2: Professional Touring Artists and Crew – up to $50,000

Eligible South Australian based professional touring contemporary music artists and their local crew may apply for funding through this competitive grant program to assist with costs associated with the planning and preparation of new touring activity.

To be eligible, applicants must be able to demonstrate a decline in income of more than 60 per cent compared to pre COVID-19, and that more than 65 per cent of their income is derived from live music activity.

Applications are currently closed.
