Grants for Music Venues

Victorian State Government has created a program to help Victoria’s live music venues, be better neighbours, by managing the sound that goes to their local neighbourhoods.

Minister for Creative Industries Martin Foley today opened the latest round of the program, which provides music venues with matched funding of up to $25,000 for noise management projects.

Eligible sound management projects could include installing acoustic insulation or heavy drapes, double-glazing windows, creating air lock entrances or hiring an acoustic consultant.

Currently the program is supporting 80 venues across Victoria and is also assisting venues that aspire to host live music events and programs for the first time, ensuring that venues uphold local noise laws and regulations.

Victorian State Government has also stated that a huge new music festival, Victoria Live will be launched in 2020 showcasing the best the Creative State has to offer, with a combination of free and ticketed events ranging from music to workshops and talks, delicious local food, wine and craft beer.

The festival will be held across the CBD, the suburbs and regional Victoria.

Applications are now open to venues across Victoria for this round of the Good Music Neighbours program and will close on 7 March.
