PPCA welcomes Revive Live

15 May 2024

Phonographic Performance Company of Australia (PPCA) today welcomes the $8.6 million Revive Live funding in the Federal Budget to support live music venues and festivals showcasing Australian artists.

PPCA CEO, Annabelle Herd, said: “A direct callout in the Federal Budget to support Australian music is a timely and important step toward establishing sustainable careers for local artist on our shores. The commitment to funding for festivals and live music will support a vital channel for discovery, ensuring our talented up and coming artists – as well as our established artists – get in front of new and larger audiences faster."

"We look forward to seeing the findings of the report from the House of Representatives Standing Committee inquiry into the challenges and opportunities within the Australian live music industry, particularly to see how additional policy measures can complement initiatives like Revive Live. PPCA will continue to work with all levels of government to maximise every opportunity for Australian music to reach its true potential."
