The Live Music Office was established by the Federal Government in partnership with APRA AMCOS to review the impact of policy frameworks on the Australian live music sector. Our scope includes planning, licensing and regulatory policies, as well as cultural, audience and sector development strategies. By encouraging dialogue, we aim to identify solutions which, working with local stakeholders, can be implement to achieve greater opportunities for the live music sector.
