Music Industry Taskforce

Industry and Community Action 

The Music Industry Taskforce consists of industry peak bodies and key players in the market* (listed below) that have come together to tackle the COVID19 crisis with a shared commitment to having a coordinated approach to community campaigns and actions.

The Taskforce is working to develop a comprehensive framework of support for all levels of the ecosystem: individuals, small businesses, medium to large companies.

Sound Of Silence (SOS) is a national initiative of the Music Industry Taskforce to bring immediate relief for an industry at the existential brink - with funds directed to Support Act's COVID-19 Emergency appeal. Support Act is a music charity which provides crisis relief services to artists, roadies and music workers who are directly affected during this time.

By working with Support Act and CrewCare and through a raft of targeted activity, the Taskforce hope to alleviate the severe haemorrhaging of income that has come with widespread cancellations of festivals, concerts, shows and local gigs.

The music industry and those at its peripheries cannot survive without an alternative source of revenue that has disappeared along with live shows, a figure that has literally gone from 100 to 0 in under a week.

The workers in our industry live from gig to gig. Shows are their lifeblood and it will take more than the containment of COVID19 to return them to economic stability. The ramifications are far-reaching and seriously long-term.

The music industry has historically banded together to donate time and money to those in need, as seen recently with bushfire relief efforts – they are always there to lend a helping hand. Now they need the Australian music-loving public to do the same.
