Brisbane has a unique live music heritage. Think The Saints, The Go Betweens, Powderfinger, Savage Garden, Bee Gees and The Veronicas.
However, how can we ensure Brisbane’s unique live music heritage and continued industry growth is nurtured? What are the barriers/what are the opportunities? What does the industry need to do? What is Arts Queensland/State Govt doing in this space?
As the industry infrastructure continues to grow what are we doing to protect, communicate and sell the unique story of Brisbane’s sound? What is it worth?
How do we compare to Sydney, where the industry has essentially ground to a halt? What went wrong there, and how can Brisbane avoid those mistakes?
