Getting the Show back on the Road

Shared risk program that supports a percentage of box office loss in the situation where there has been a negative impact due to COVID-19 for the presentation of performing arts and live music events.

Getting the Show back on the Road supports a percentage of box office loss for performing arts and live music events where there is a negative impact due to COVID-19 restrictions. 

Stream A eases the financial risks for performing arts organisations, live music producers and presenters, festival organisers and commercial event companies to stage a show or tour during this uncertain time. 

Stream B supports DLGSC recurrently-funded or project-funded organisations and individuals for events impacted by the extension of the COVID-19 Phase 4 restrictions that were announced by the State Government of Western Australia on 18 August 2020.

The Getting the Show back on the Road program is a part of the WA Recovery Plan’s $15 million shared risk package to reactivate live performances and touring activities.
