Live Music and Event Cancellation Fund

COVID-19 restrictions have had a significant impact on the ability to host successful live music performances.

The Fund aims to provide certainty to South Australia’s live music and events industry by introducing funding support for event organisers of major events.

Under the Fund, event organisers can seek financial assistance of between $10,000 and $250,000 if a major ticketed event is cancelled or rescheduled as a result of the introduction of new COVID-19 health restrictions by either the South Australian Government or the Australian Government.

The Fund seeks to limit associated financial losses by assisting event organisers with legitimately incurred costs and expenses directly associated with the cancelled or rescheduled event.
