Closing Date: American Express Music Grant

Australians love music. In fact, on average, more Australians attend live music gigs each year than sporting events. Yet despite this, small music venues, often the training grounds for emerging artists, have witnessed a steady decline in patrons and some have shut down all together.

Through The American Express Music Backers Program we’ll provide a boost to the Australian music industry and the fans that support it so we can play our part to help it thrive for many more years to come.

Over the next 12 months we’re committing to support the Australian music industry by giving music venues, business, artists and fans the opportunity to share in a grant program valued at $1million.

We’ll back venues, we’ll back music businesses, we’ll back artists and we’ll back fans.
