AMEX Music Backers Grant

January 31


We’re backing the Australian music industry with a grant program valued at $1,000,000

Australians love music. In fact, on average, more Australians attend live music gigs each year than sporting events. Yet despite this, small music venues, often the training grounds for emerging artists, have witnessed a steady decline in patrons and some have shut down all together.

Through The American Express Music Backers Grant Program we’ll provide a boost to the Australian music industry and the fans that support it so we can play our part to help it thrive for many more years to come.

Over the next 12 months we’re committing to support the Australian music industry by giving music venues, business, artists and fans the opportunity to share in a grant program valued at $1million.

We’ll back venues, we’ll back music businesses, we’ll back artists and we’ll back fans.

Submissions Open:          12am AEST 1 July 2018, and then the first day every month following until 1 May 2019
Submissions Close:         11.59pm on the last day of every month until 31 May 2019
Recipients announced:     Dates will be posted here each month
