This week saw the Federal Government announce the extension of the $50m Temporary Interruption Fund (TIFF) to help the screen sector through the continued uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic. As the live music and entertainment industry continues to struggle amongst the COVID-19 pandemic, we continue our urgent calls for a similar package or level of support provided for the live music industry.
The live music and entertainment industry’s calls over the past 18 months for a national scheme similar to the TIFF have fallen on deaf ears. Australia now lags behind New Zealand, the UK, Germany, Austria, Netherlands, Belgium, Norway, Denmark and Estonia in delivering a solution to this issue.
