Funding Cut for Sounds Australia

The Federal government has continued to negatively effect Australia’s live entertainment industry by cutting funding to Sounds Australia.

The government’s Catalyst funding program is responsible for funding art and culture ventures throughout Australia but has abruptly discontinued its support of Sounds Australia. According to Australian singer Gosling, Sounds Australia is the “reason Australia has seen such success on the world stage in recent years”.

Hordes of Australian artists are taking to their Facebook pages to protest the controversial decision.
