A new music program will open up international opportunities for Australian artists.
4 August 2021

The Sounds Australia Export Stimulus Program will help Australian artists and crew return to the global stage and see Australia continue as a major player in the music export industry.

With support from the Australian Government, along with Sounds Australia's leading funding partners, the Export Stimulus Package of $1.2 million will support costs associated with:

  • visas (petition application and associated legal fees)
  • international flights and freight
  • pre-tour rehearsals
  • travel for managers to accompany their acts overseas
  • hotel quarantine
  • insurance, including COVID-increased premiums.

Round 1 applications open on 9 August and close on 3 September 2021, for activities taking place from 1 October 2021 onwards.
