New South Wales turns into the land of 1000 gigs this November.
The moment we have been waiting for has finally arrived and we can now start planning ahead. So guys, which gigs are you going to go see this Aus Music Month?
Will it be Thelma Plum on the North Coast, The Presets at Factory Theatre, or Ngaiire in the Blue Mountains? Maybe they’re not your pint of beer, and that’s fine because there are a thousand gigs to choose from.
Maybe you don’t yet have a clue which artist you want to see. Maybe you just want to go see some live music, to feel the sound pumping out of speakers and the energy in the room. Well, if that’s the case, catching a gig this November will be as easy as jumping across to the Great Southern Nights gig guide. Choose the date or region you’re in to highlight all the artists and gigs you can get to. It’s that easy to support live music this November.
Starring all Aussie performers and bands, the Great Southern Nights initiative intends to stimulate the live music, entertainment, hospitality, and tourism sectors during the recovery phase of COVID-19. And the NSW government, alongside ARIA and Destination NSW, is helping by contributing some dollars to all venues who are putting on a show.
The 1000 gigs are to be played in venues across NSW and greater Sydney, from the coast to the bush, showcasing some of Australia’s best emerging talent as well as established performers. All 1000 gigs will need to meet the prevailing NSW Government health advice and COVID-19 requirements so you can feel assured that all the necessary precautions have been put in place. However, there remains the possibility that gigs may be subject to change or cancellation due to unforeseen circumstances.
Nevertheless, we’re pretty damn excited. Like, really. First, we get news that Sydney has finally decided to become a truly global 24-hour city and now they’re showering us with 1000 gigs packed into one month of music! Brilliant.
