The music industry of Australia will gather to support live music in NSW which has come under threat with its archaic ‘Footloose’-like policy aimed to destroy the live music scene of New South Wales.

Inept New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian has introduced a ridiculous new rules which has added hundreds of thousands of dollars in costs to promoters to put on a festival.

Berejiklian has been a good support of the casino industry but sees the music industry as some sort of threat to society.

The industry in NSW is fed up with Berejiklian’s incompetence and is doing something about it. The Don’t Let The Berejiklian Government Kill Live Music Rally will take place in Sydney on 21 February. Here are the details:

Don’t Kill Live Music Rally 6pm – 8pm Thursday February 21st Hyde Park Sydney

Dear music lovers,

Your music is under attack.

Overbearing regulation, exorbitant police bills, a lack of respect for NSW businesses, and very little recognition of the significant positive impacts of music on our communities is forcing music out of NSW. The State Government have declared a war on music and culture in NSW, proclaiming that music, and music festivals are high-risk activities.

Music is being killed off by Premier Berejiklian and the LNP. Festivals are being forced to cancel or move interstate.

The NSW State Government is vilifying live music with knee-jerk regulation (more details here). Instead of consulting with festival experts, the NSW Government imposed punitive regulation that specifically targets music festivals and music fans. Festivals are being used as a scapegoat for years of failed drug and alcohol policy.

We want our music culture to be safe and inclusive. Onerous and ill-considered regulation will not save lives. And the State Government is decimating our music culture in the process.

We demand that the State Government:
Stops killing live music in NSW
Forms a music regulation roundtable to review all regulation impacting live music
Immediately undertakes a Regulatory Impact Statement for any regulation impacting music festivals
Develops an industry standard with full transparency for user-pays policing and medical services
Works with the music industry to develop robust, effective and achievable safety protocols for festivals
Don’t let the Premier Berejiklian and the State Government take music away from you. You deserve better. NSW deserves better. Please see the list of signatories and supporters below…


Come to the Don’t Kill Live Music Rally 6pm – 8pm Thursday Feb 21st, Hyde Park Sydney.
Register here: Don’t Kill Live Music Rally 2019

In an ironic twist, February 23rd will be the nine-year anniversary of the SLAM rally in Melbourne.

Sign this petition to demand the Berejiklian government stop killing live music HERE.

Don’t let Gladys kill live music.

Don’t sit back and watch them ruin NSW.
