VIC - Good Music Neighbours

The July 2016 round of Music Works Good Music Neighbours grants will be accepting applications using the online Creative Victoria Grants Portal from Monday 4 July 2016 until 5pm on Wednesday 13 July 2016. 

The Good Music Neighbours grants help venues be proactive about sound management and offer up to $25,000 per venue in matched funding. 

The Victorian Government is committed to supporting Victoria’s world renowned night time economy and to help live music venues and their communities grow and prosper together. 

Settlement trends over recent years are increasing the level of residential development in mixed use areas, particularly in the inner city.  While this creates more efficient and vibrant environments, close proximity between residential and entertainment uses can sometimes cause conflict. 

Managing noise is a costly business, but even small design changes can have dramatic effects to the emission of sound.  The Good Music Neighbours program is part of a ground up approach to support the venues and industry that add so much to our cultural conversation and to provide meaningful support to the iconic Victorian live music sector.

Aims of Good Music Neighbours  

  1. To support Victoria’s iconic live music sector and to help it thrive and continue to be accessible.
  2. To co-invest in responsible design and management of live music sound in Victorian venues to achieve best practice.
  3. To encourage and diversify the expansion of live music options in the community.
