On 30/07/2015 the South Australian Government introduced the Liquor Licensing (Entertainment on Licensed Premises) Amendment Bill 2015 into the South Australian parliament.

This change to South Australian liquor laws will mean that licensed premises providing (live) entertainment between the hours of 11am and 12am midnight will no longer be required to have the entertainment type and other conditions such as permitted hours as a condition on their liquor licence.

These entertainment consent provisions have been a significant barrier to the development of live music in South Australia. With associated planning controls also being revised to support this reform, it is expected that musicians and venues in South Australia will have more opportunities to perform, and less red tape and cost for business – provided these amendments can be passed.
