See It LIVE Grant Boosts Live Music in the City

Last updated 11 Apr, 2024

In a major boost to the arts, 12 live music venues across the city are set to benefit from the State Government’s new See It LIVE Music Activation Fund. These venues will receive financial support to cover various costs associated with hosting live music events.

Supporting Venues and Enhancing Sustainability

The recipients of the See It LIVE grants will enjoy more than just financial assistance. In a strategic move to support long-term sustainability in the sector, the Music Development Office and the Office for Small and Family Business have joined forces to provide comprehensive business support services including access to a tailored workshop focusing on business fundamentals specifically designed for live music venues, one-on-one consultations to assess individual business needs, and opportunities to secure business mentors.

Venues Receiving the See It LIVE Grant

A diverse range of venues will benefit from this initiative:

  • Lion Arts Factory - Known for its eclectic performances.
  • Ancient World - A hub for underground music vibes.
  • Unibar ADL - The go-to spot for university crowds.
  • Grace Emily Hotel - Home to authentic live music experiences.
  • Broadcast Bar - Where live tunes meet cosy nightlife.
  • Jive - A venue that’s as lively as its name suggests.
  • ARTHUR Art Bar - A multi-storied gallery, bar and live music venue that hosts regular, creatively driven events.

  • Nexus Arts - Focused on culturally diverse performances.
  • My Lover Cindi - Indie music and artistic expression converge.
  • Exeter Hotel - A relaxed atmosphere for enjoying live acts.
