Close to collapse: NSW music industry calls for immediate action

A new petition urgently calls for the state government to save the live music industry and the tens of thousands of people it employs.

Sixty one independent venues have joined together to launch a petition, Save Our Stages NSW, urging the state government to act before the state’s live music industry collapses.
