The Andrews’ Victorian Government is offering the third round of grants for the Good Neighbours program.
Up to $25,000 is available per music venue in matched funding for venues to minimise sound impact on surrounding homes and businesses.
The Andrews’ Labor Government has dedicated $22 million over four years to the Music Works package and set up Good Music Neighbours to address soundproofing needs to further strengthen Victoria’s live music industry.
So far 22 venues across Victoria have received acoustic assessment funding.
The Night Cat’s Justin Stanford says, “Good Music Neighbours and Agent of Change legislation has been amazing for The Night Cat. Good Music Neighbours match funded $25,000 worth of soundproofing works including airlocks front and rear of the venue and insulated window coverings at the front of the venue, acoustic ceiling tiles, acoustic filling for hollow stages, theatrical drapes and more. Victorian Government, Creative Victoria are leading the way in how to achieve great results for venues and to keep venues open for music lovers”
