See it LIVE Music Package

The Royal Adelaide Show will also get a $500,000 grant to bring back live music to the program as part of the South Australian government backed See it LIVE Music Package.

The government will invest $10 million to deliver a suite of measures including a range of grants, voucher scheme, mental health support programs, venue upgrades, a live music advisory council and events cancellation insurance.

Event grants of between $5000 to $50,000 will be available from July for SA-based promoters, organisations and businesses, while music venues will be able to apply for $5000 grants for upgrades.

Financial assistance of between $10,000 and $250,000 will also be available if an event or live music performance is cancelled or rescheduled due to the introduction of Covid restrictions.

A new Live Music Advisory Council will also be established to help revitalise live music in South Australia.
