Live Music Strategy 2019-2023

The City of Newcastle (CN) has placed our Live Music Strategy on public exhibition and encourages feedback. Live music has been making a positive contribution to the Newcastle community and night time economy for more than forty years.

We’ve aimed to foster new talent, support venues and audiences against a backdrop of social and built environment changes. To reinforce the contribution live music makes to our city, we’ve undertaken research and engaged with the community to develop a range of practical actions to improve Newcastle's live music sector.

In collaboration with partner agencies and individuals we aim to: 

  • Sustain and grow the live music element of Newcastle’s night time economy as described in CN’s Newcastle After Dark Strategy 2018-2022
  • Manage the impacts of live music on residents and the community without compromising the viability of the city’s live music precincts and venues
  • Facilitate opportunities for the all age music sector to nurture emerging local talent and provide career pathways in the live music sector
  • Provide safe live music participation opportunities for young audiences in Newcastle
  • Activate the city centre and growth corridors through the delivery of live performance in a range of indoor and outdoor venues and settings.
