SAVE LIVE MUSIC IN VICTORIA

Music venues in Victoria are under enormous pressure and need our support.

On top of rising rents and the cost of living, insurance for live music venues has been hiked up astronomically, putting the local music scene at risk. Too many venues have already had to shut their doors. Our local live music venues are crucial to nurturing multiple and evolving cultures and we want to make sure that our venues and local music thrive into the future.

We therefore ask the State Government to step in and underwrite live music venues’ insurance through the government’s Victorian Managed Insurance Authority, which exists to “cover the people, places and projects that help Victorians thrive.”
