The Show Must Go On: Supporting the growth of live performance infrastructure in NSW

A city without music and live performance is a city without soul – it’s time for government to focus its attention on how we can bring the beat back to our CBDs and main streets.
We have a problem in NSW with a lack of appropriate venues for live performance. We lack theatres, both big and small, and what venues we do have, are not adequately distributed across the State.

In response, the Western Sydney Business Chamber has launched a new paper calling for Government to take action to support the retention and expansion of live performance venues across the State.
The report, The Show Must Go On: Supporting the Growth of Live Performance in NSW, highlights the perilous state of live performance venues in NSW which is in chronic decline at the same time that demand for live music and performance is growing.
