The national Live Music Office has harnessed the power of digital technology to create a national Live Music Map, an online tool to help bring the live music sector closer together.

Essentially a tool for artists and the broader live music industry, the map highlights everything needed to tour the country. From venues to gear hire, community radio and booking agents, the Live Music Map plots businesses all over Australia including:

  • Live music venues
  • Radio stations
  • Recording and rehearsal studios
  • Music education centres
  • Production and backline companies
  • Agents and promoters
  • Music organisations

Developed in association with the South Australian Government through their Music Development Office and the Australian Music Radio Airplay Project (Amrap), the Live Music Map is hosted on the Live Music Office website.

Established by the Federal Government, in partnership with APRA AMCOS, the Live Music Office works to increase opportunities for live music in Australia by identifying and advocating for better policy, regulation and strategy.

Damian Cunningham, Audience and Sector Development Director for the Live Music Office, said, "Live performance provides a major chunk of income to artists. With the Live Music Map, we are removing barriers and connecting various components of the live music sector to help artists tour the country with ease. We hope it will create more opportunities for performers and bolster the great live music venues that exist across Australia."
