Musicians in the electorate of Badgerys Creek are encouraged to apply for the Sound NSW Touring and Travel Fund. 

Tanya Davies MP, Member for Badgerys Creek, said the $2 million program offers quick response grants of up to $2,500 per person for domestic activity and $7,500 per person for international activity. 

“Touring gives artists an opportunity to connect with fans and build their career while offering their artistry to new and unique audiences,” Mrs Davies stated. 

“From Jimmy Barnes to INXS, Troy Cassar-Daley to Ashleigh Dallas, every iconic Australian artist has earned their stripes on tour, playing in venues along the Eastern Seaboard and throughout inland NSW. 

“Having artists tour our regional towns and cities also adds vibrancy to the cultural makeup of our state and gives audiences across the state access to new experiences. 

“Artists also have an opportunity to reach international audiences, which is extremely exciting for those who are yet to play for tourists from overseas. “I’m encouraging local artists in Badgerys Creek to start the planning now and pull together a tour to remember,” concluded Mrs Davies. 

Applications for the Sound NSW Touring and Travel Fund are open now and will close on 20 May 2024.
