Australian Artists Speak Up For Australian Music At Australian Election

Jimmy Barnes, Katie Noonan and Josh Pyke are just a few Australian Music names who have raised their voices ahead of the Australian election for governments to support the Australian Music Industry.

Australia has the world’s 6th biggest music market.

More people in Australia see live music than a sporting match each year. For every dollar spent on Australian music multiples are returned. The Australian Music Industry supports over 65000 jobs and most of those jobs are from small business.

APRA AMCOS is urging the federal government to continue to invest in Australian music. In a recent survey commissioned by APRA AMCOS 98% of people said the federal government should invest in the music industry.

The survey also found that:

90% It’s an export industry worth millions of dollars to the economy
98% It’s an important part of our culture and identity
90% I like to be able to go and see live music near me
91% It creates job growth and drives innovation

72% of respondents also said that an investment in Australian music would influence their vote.

The Australian music industry generates $2 billion annually for the economy through contemporary music alone. The entire music sector generates $6 billion a year.

Every dollar spent puts $3 back into the economy.
