Musicians in the Myall Lakes are encouraged to pack their bags and get on the road, taking advantage of the Sound NSW Touring and Travel Fund.

Member for Myall Lakes, Tanya Thompson said the $2 million program offers quick response grants of up to $2,500 per person for domestic activity and $7,500 per person for international activity.

“Touring gives artists an opportunity to connect with fans from across the state, helping build their career while offering their artistry to new and unique audiences,” Mrs Thompson said.

“From Jimmy Barnes to INXS, Troy Cassar-Daley to Ashleigh Dallas, every iconic Australian artist has earned their stripes on tour, playing in venues along the Eastern Seaboard and throughout inland NSW.

“Having artists tour our regional towns and cities also adds vibrancy to the cultural makeup of our state and gives audiences across the state access to new experiences.

Mrs Thompson is encouraging artists in the Myall Lakes to start the planning now.

“If you meet all eligibility criteria, you will receive funding, this is a non-competitive grant. Get in early and apply now before the funding is exhausted.”

Matty Zarb, talented local musician said, “This is a fabulous opportunity for our local regional artists to reach international audiences, which is extremely exciting for those who are yet to play for tourists from overseas.”

Applications for the Sound NSW Touring and Travel Fund are open now and will close on May 20, or until the funding is exhausted.
