Outback pubs and regional theatres will benefit from a boost to live music from the Nationals in government.
The NSW Nationals in the federal government have announced 100 venues across the country will share in round two of the Live Music Australia program.
The program, which opened in August last year, will deliver annual funding of $5 million over four years.
NSW Nationals Senator Perin Davey said the funding will provide critical support for local live music venues while assisting local communities and economies to re-emerge from the pandemic.
“I’m pleased to announce that Red Floor Productions Pty Limited have received $25,500 through round two of the Live Music Australia Program,” Senator Davey said.
“This critical funding will assist with covering the cost of performance fees, staging equipment and promotion fees for the Red Floor Productions Dashville Nights regional concert program.”
Dashville Nights is a series of concerts that have been staged at Belford in the Hunter Valley since 2004.
Applications for round three of the Live Music Australia program will open later this year.
