Over the last 12 months, Music Victoria membership fees have helped fund the organisation to achieve significant protection and create opportunities for the state contemporary music industry.
These include advocating for regulatory protection and attenuation grants for venues, and exemptions for small live music venues from the late night liquor licensing freeze. Musicians have directly benefitted from the hard work of Music Victoria in helping keep venues open. Over the next 12 months Music Victoria will continue to work closely with the state government in delivering its $22.2million Music Works package to assist in directing distribution of the package.
Take advantage of the great benefits on offer, and ensure Victoria has a strong independent voice to represent the most robust music industry in the country. We’ve got your back.
