Outdoor Dining Live Music Pilot

We know our community loves live music. The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have been particularly devastating on the City’s live music scene due to the restrictions on live performance.

This has meant that Council has needed to look for COVID-safe ways to continue developing our live music program and drive visitation to our great City, whilst adhering strongly to the important Public Health Orders currently in place to keep our community safe.

To support live performance, business recovery and to bring vibrancy to the streets of our City over the warm summer months, Council has developed a pilot program to trial allowing live music performance within our outdoor dining areas.

This will enable live performance to be facilitated within a controlled space, where the details of all attendees and performers is recorded, and adhere to current restrictions on events.

To support businesses to take up the pilot, a funding pool of $10,000 has been made available to assist businesses in programming local musicians to play in their venues.
