The Premier has just announced the roadmap to COVID Normal for regional Victoria and metropolitan Melbourne.
Dispiriting news for the live music sector:
Regarding live music, restricted outdoor shows can’t happen until there’s an average of less than five new cases; no indoor shows until there’s no new cases for at least 14 days.
Music Victoria will be pushing for streamed shows and studio work to be one of the permitted industries from September 28 so artists and producers can derive an income.
