Lockout Laws Hurt Music Industry

"Pride is one of the great things about Queensland. I don’t know of a region that expresses pride in its people and features like our great state. I had the good fortune of visiting many places across the world during my days in the band Powderfinger – and that Queensland pride always shone". John Collins, former Powderfinger bassist and co-owner of Brisbane live music venue, The Triffid on the Labor Government’s proposed lockout laws.


QMusic 2015 Survey Findings

Mid last year, we asked you to 'Help Us Create A Vision For The Queensland Music Industry' to inform the next QMusic Strategic Plan and Vision. Just before Christmas we shared an analysis of the findings with you but in case you missed it - here they are again. Based on this feedback, QMusic will develop the organisation's 2017 - 2020 Strategic Plan to submit to Arts Queensland in 2016.
