Queensland's once-thriving live music scene has been absolutely shattered by COVID-19 restrictions.

While strict rules have been relaxed for Suncorp Stadium to host State of Origin with 50,000 people packed in, music venues are STILL only allowed to operate at a reduced capacity with heavy social distancing restrictions. Venues can’t even breakeven, let alone pay artists and other staff.

Due to this unfair double-standard, thousands of people are out of work including band members, bar staff, roadies, lighting specialists, soundies and more. At this rate QLD's live music scene will shut down in 2021, killing an incredibly strong part of the Australian music scene and the birthplace for many acclaimed artists.

Now is the LAST CHANCE for QLD to support the live music scene. It’s live or death. Vote for the Queensland Government to PLAY FAIR and finally put an end to crippling restrictions on music venues before it’s too late.
