The Live Music Business Improvement Program will support the revitalisation of the Gold Coast music scene. The City of Gold Coast's Music Action Plan 2021 underpins this investment initiative.

The program will help music businesses improve, grow and diversify their operations. It provides discretionary capped funding towards eligible improvements (up to the identified maximum). The program accepts applications from:

  • existing music venues – up to $10,000 for music venue and business improvements
  • existing music businesses – up to $5,000 for music business improvements.

Funding applications close on Wednesday 27 January 2021. We expect that the the assessment process will take several weeks. We will share outcomes with applicants by early March.
