Barossa Live Music Census
As part of the Live and Local program, the Barossa Council is conducting a Live Music Census from 20 September 2023 to 20 October 2023.
The Census will support Council to gain a snapshot of what forms live music experiences take on in our region, where and how often live music is played, as well as what the economic, cultural and social outcomes of live music are at this time.
We are interested in all ages, genres, cultures and settings; from live music in our schools and places of worship through to festivals, concerts, busking, open mic events and winery gigs.
The data from the live music census will be used to inform Council’s understandings of where and how live music happens in all corners of our region. The census will support us to map existing assets and supply chains, as well as begin to measure economic status and possibility for growth.
Live music has always played an integral part in the Barossa community’s sense of place, social and communal wellbeing and its creative economy. From the Hill & Son Organ at the Barossa Regional Gallery, to contemporary singer songwriters and bands; the heritage, history and breadth of musical talent in the Barossa plays a fundamental role in its communal identity.
Whether you’re a venue or organisation hosting a live music event or a live musician yourself, take part in the 20/20 Live Music Census and empower our local live music industry for the future!
