Abstract/Summary This report provides a valuation of the economic, social and cultural contribution to the Australian community of the Australian Live Music Industries. The valuation employs a cost-benefit analysis framework that draws on a national survey of consumers; interviews with venue owners and operators; and currently available sector data. This research has demonstrated that live music activity in Australia delivers significant benefits to the Australian community. Investment of time and money in the live music sector delivers an impressive return and is clearly producing a public good. We encourage decision makers in both industry and government to reflect on these findings and consider how they might continue to improve and develop the live music sector in Australia through funding, better regulation and small business support.
