Young Victorians will enjoy a packed gig calendar thanks to a new program supporting all-ages shows across the state.
Managed by youth music organisation The Push and supported by the Victorian Government, grants of up to $2000 will be made available to live music event organisers to support costs including venue hire, staffing, security, production costs and artist fees.
The new All-Ages Grants program will further strengthen the all-ages gigs scene, opening up opportunities for more groups to host events, for artists and bands to perform for new audiences, and for Victorians of all ages to enjoy live music.
Applications are now open for the first round of the program which will support live music events taking place between 20 August 2019 and 24 February 2020. Applications are open to Victorian venues, artists and bands, promoters and community groups. A second round will open in January 2020.
