COVID-19 crisis -more Australian music to be played on Australian radio.

0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500!


Expanding restrictions on public gatherings have led to the Australian live music industry reporting a loss of $47 million. This is not only felt across the live sector but also across the wider arts communities. Many artists, agents, crew, venues and many more have experienced job loss and income loss for the foreseeable future.

We are asking you to sign this petition to demand that Australian radio stations increase their Australian music quota in hopes that whilst musicians cannot earn income from playing live, they have the chance to earn income via royalties from radio airplay. This will help them pay their rent and live and also encourage new works to be made, with a domino effect of creating and keeping jobs for recording engineers, graphic artists, managers etc. 

We also action APRA AMCOS to pay royalties if possible at earlier dates for artists. 

Essentially playing more Australian artist won't disrupt the radio waves or cost more money but it will help out those musicians and the likes who will no doubt suffer in the next coming months or who knows how long.

Without music, life would be a mistake” ― Friedrich Nietzsche.
