As part of the City of Sydney’s Live Music and Performance Action Plan, in 2014 the City of Sydney matched funding to APRA AMCOS and The Live Music Office to help promote live music and performance in Sydney, with a focus on local artists and local venues.

Presented by key partners The Live Music Office, APRA AMCOS and the City of Sydney, the Kings Cross IGNITE precinct event highlights venues in Kings Cross that provide regular jobs and opportunities for our great Australian musicians. This is the second pilot of the Live and Local event methodology created by The Live Music Office and APRA AMCOS. It will become a template to support live music audience and sector development across metropolitan and regional Australia.

Supporting event sponsors for Kings Cross Ignite are The X Studio, ARIA Week, NSW AHA, Uliveto, and Alberts.
