The Government of South Australia has announced the $10 million See it LIVE package that will get local musicians and performers back on stage through a range of support programs for live music and hospitality venues, promoters and more.

New voucher and grant schemes will get live entertainment back in venues and support performers, live music events and festivals. Initiatives around mental health support for the industry, a cancellation fund for major ticketed events and a Live Music Advisory Council will bolster this industry in our state.

Applications and registrations are now open for three initiatives:

  • 5000 e-vouchers, worth $400 each, for live music and hospitality venues to host live music. The vouchers will help music acts get back into pubs, clubs, small bars, restaurants, cafes and other smaller venues.
  • Event grants available for SA-based promoters, organisations and businesses, to help meet costs including engaging musicians and technicians, marketing and promotion costs and ensuring the event is COVID-19 safe.
  • A Venue Improvement Grants program will provide 200 grants of $5000 each to eligible venues to upgrade so they can cater for live music performances.
