New Results for the NZ Music Venue Infrastructure Fund Announced

September 24th 2020
Over $2.6million has now been allocated to NZ Music Venues across Aotearoa.

NZ Music Venue Infrastructure Fund is to support COVID-19 related health and safety measures for music venues and support the infrastructure costs for original NZ music performance venues across New Zealand. This investment will provide music venues a contribution towards the costs associated with operating a live music venue with an environment which is fit for purpose and safe for artists, audiences and staff, and assist in ensuring a viable ongoing touring circuit for original NZ music.


34 venues are announced today, bringing us to 77 venues that have been supported to date by the Fund across 26 towns and cities around New Zealand. There are a handful of venue applications still processing and being finalised, and when confirmed we will publish the full list of all venues.

The past two rounds are available here and here.
