Save live music in Brisbane

It’s time something was done to save our live music scene in Brisbane.

Did you see the news that The Zoo—one of Brisbane's most beloved live music venues—will be closing their doors in July?

Our arts community and local hospo businesses are ringing alarm bells that The Zoo’s closure is just the beginning. And with dozens of small music festivals closing up too, live music all around Brisbane is in trouble. 

It’s not just live music venues that are struggling. Arts workers and working musicians are getting hit hard by the cost of living crisis—and losing the few gigs still paying in town is making it worse.  

That’s why I'm calling on the state government to buy smaller buildings and venues and lease them back out to not-for-profits and councils to create spaces for creative industries and artists.
