Music Australia launches Music Festivals Survey

Music Australia is calling for information from festival organisers across the country about their 2024 festivals (held, in planning, or cancelled).   

Recent years have seen significant challenges for music festivals due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, extreme weather events, regulatory changes and rising operational costs.  

Following the publication of Soundcheck: Insights into Australia’s music festival sector last week, alongside ongoing festival cancellations, there has been much discussion about the way forward for the music festival sector. 

We are now seeking updated data from festival organisers so that we can understand how current pressures are playing out across the festival sector.   

Festival organisers are invited to contribute by 1 May 2024 and can contact comms@creative.gov.au to participate.
