Live music has long been at the heart of Port Phillip. From our iconic music venues to our unique festivals, our music schools and institutions to our buskers and community groups, this City is known for live music and is celebrated for it.

The Live Music Action Plan 2021–24 outlines what Council can and will do to future-proof live music in Port Phillip, and ensure it remains a priority amongst competing interests and the pressures of a changing and growing community. As a key initiative of the Art & Soul Creative & Prosperous City Strategy, it is a measure of the importance placed on sustaining local live music.


In early 2020, we asked for your feedback on the draft Live Music Action Plan.

Since then, however, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused unique and unexpected challenges for our City’s live music sector, such as bringing audiences back safely, supporting local musicians and assisting our venues with recovery initiatives.

The draft Live Music Action Plan 2021–24 was revised to address these challenges and outline what Council will do to future-proof and support live music in Port Phillip.

In February and March 2021 we asked for your feedback on the draft Plan to inform any changes prior to it being presented for adoption at the 21 April 2021 Ordinary Meeting of Council.
