In this time of uncertainty, with isolation periods stretching indefinitely it’s important that we band together as music lovers to support the artists, workers and entire industry through this tough time.
The necessary ban on non-essential social gatherings has put a pause on live music in Australia for the moment. However, there are numerous ways that we can still support our beloved artists and industry so they can keep bringing us music in all forms once this has passed.
HOW YOU CAN HELP:
- Stream: Music can be the greatest form of escape, so what better way to brighten your mood than streaming your favourite Australian artists.
Stream music from our local management roster Arno Faraji, Basenji, Collarbones, Cosmo's Midnight, Dro Carey, GL, George Nicholas, Milan Ring, Retiree, Stevan, Wave Racer, Winston Surfshirt.
- Buy merch: Support your favourite artists and get yourself some new gear to rock in quarantine.
- Share your favourite artist: Share your favourite track with friends and family, swap isolation playlists and help them grow their audience.
- Keep your concert tickets: If you have tickets for a show that’s been postponed, don't get a refund, hold on to them. So long as you’re financially in a position to do so, this will ensure that tour operators can keep doing what they do and bring you your beloved artists to Australian shores.
- Donate to Support Act: If you have the means to do so, give some love to Support Act. They're a charity providing crisis relief services to artists, roadies and music workers directly effect in this time.
- Post in ‘I Lost My Gig’: If you are a performer, production, crew, hospitality workers, managers, booking agents or any other worker affected by this, add your losses to ‘I Lost My Gig'
- Stream ‘I Lost My Gig’ playlist: Checkout and share the ‘I Lost My Gig’ playlist which consists of artists that have lost shows due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Thank you for your patience and understanding in this time.
Stay safe and stay positive everyone, looking forward to that first boogie back on the dance floor!
