The Live Music Office has partnered with the City of Parramatta to work on of an overall strategy to to foster the growth of the City’s live music scene.

The new partnership will involve the delivery of key projects to establish a thriving local music culture in Parramatta.

“Parramatta is a city that is evolving into a true cultural destination. There has long been support for live music in the region, and the opportunity to develop this further with the Live Music Office is an exciting one,” City of Parramatta Administrator Amanda Chadwick said. “A vibrant live music scene will perfectly complement Parramatta’s thriving restaurant precinct and will support the development of small bars. It is expected to provide an economic boost to the city through increased patronage and visitor spend, particularly as part of the night time economy.

“Live music has a way of invigorating a space, creating atmosphere and drawing people in. We expect the local community, visitors, workers and businesses will greatly enjoy and benefit from the creation of a live music scene in the city.”

As part of the new initiative, City of Parramatta is recruiting a Live Music Programming Coordinator to facilitate the delivery of the project. The 12-month, part-time contract role will work closely with Council, the Live Music Office and local businesses and stakeholders to create a dynamic live music industry in Parramatta.

“We welcome this new partnership with the City of Parramatta,” Live Music Office Audience and Sector Development Director Damian Cunningham said. “Integrating sector development initiatives and policy planning is essential to growing live music from the grass roots up. The appointment of a Live Music Programming Coordinator will benefit artists, audiences and businesses in Parramatta.”
