16 music industry bodies released a three-point plan hoping to lobby politicians and advance Australia's creative potential.

As early votes begin to file in for the Federal Election (21 May), time is running out to sway the votes. Today, 16 Australian music industry bodies including APRA AMCOS, ARIA, Live Performance Australia and Support Act have come together to advocate for a three-point plan in the election’s lead-up.

The three listed priorities include direct investment in the creation of new Australian music, skills development and global exports, events insurance to provide certainty for local audiences and programs to build industry sustainability through strong intellectual property and national mentorship programs.
