A new micro festival is coming to Newcastle

Newcastle will share in a $150,000 fund to host a Live and Local events as part of a NSW Government initiative to take it’s micro music festival program to regional centres.

Orange, Newcastle, Tenterfield, Tweed Shire, Wagga Wagga, Kempsey, Armidale and Mudgee will all take a slice of $150,00  that Minister for the Arts Don Harwin says will facilitate opportunities for the promotion of live music across the state.

“This is a great initiative where Councils can offer local artists a platform to be heard. From school bands to rock bands, locals will be entertained by locals for free” Mr Harwin said.

“After our events in Parramatta, Camden and Wollondilly dating back to last year, I’m delighted that we are able to widen the net to help grow live music in regional NSW.”

The $150,000 funding administered by Live Music Office on behalf of Create NSW and is used to cover the cost of fees for musicians, curators and technicians involved in the events.
