Live Music Venue Support – Arts Queensland

June 3


The Live Music Venue Support program (3 July 2020 – 3 June 2021) supported Queensland-based live music venues with a track record in presenting original live music that have been significantly impacted by COVID-19. The program is part of the Queensland Government’s Arts and Cultural Recovery Package of $22.5 million over two years to stabilise Queensland’s arts companies, secure employment for artists and arts workers and deliver COVID-safe cultural experiences for Queensland audiences.


  • Relieve immediate cost pressures for live music venues at a time that operation is curtailed
  • Support employment of venue staff, technical crew and artists
  • Ensure live music venues are in a strong position to safely resume full operations as and when restrictions are lifted
  • Support the current and future viability of Queensland’s live music venues


  • up to $15,000 for small venues (up to 499 pax.)
  • up to $25,000 for large venues (over 500 pax.)
