Live Music Support program - Round 4

The Live Music Support Program (LMSP) Round 4 provides grant funding to Queensland-based indoor live music venues to offset revenue losses and stabilise business operations in 2021 for costs incurred from 1 October 2021 to 31 December 2021. 

This builds on earlier support delivered via the Queensland Government’s Arts and Cultural Recovery Package. This program acknowledges the continuing impacts of COVID-19 on the financial viability of live music venues, and the importance of music venues for Queensland communities, artists, and the economy.
