NSW 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 actions of the NSW government could have a spin off effect on Melbourne. Without major festivals in NSW, it becomes very difficult to bring out your favourite international artists. Sending out a large message now will hopefully prevent Victorian government’s following in the same footsteps as NSW and cancelling our favourite festivals.
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!
