The Victorian Government is providing more support for live performance events that have been cancelled due to the recent coronavirus restrictions.

Who will the program support?


How much funding is available?


The Live Performance Support Program has two streams:

  1. Presenters – The presenter stream is open to live performance event presenters, including producers, promoters, venue owners and artists who promote their own shows. Applicants can apply for either $7000 or $5000 for one event, and a further $5000 for a second event. Find out more here.
  2. Suppliers – The supplier stream is open to suppliers contracted to work on events, including performers, crew, technicians and engineers. Suppliers may be eligible for a grant of either $200 or $500 per event for up to 20 events. Suppliers do not need to be GST-registered. Find out more here.

The Victorian government updated this program in response to industry feedback and to assist a wider range of affected event businesses and workers.
