NSW Festival Relaunch Package
Applications for the NSW Festival Relaunch Package have closed.
The aim of this package is to assist established festivals to relaunch after almost two years of major disruption brought about by COVID-19.
The package has been developed in recognition of the significant economic stimulus festivals bring to the NSW economy, particularly to regional NSW.
The package will provide a one-off cash injection to stabilise these businesses and organisations, ensure employment opportunities remain for key personnel and to ensure future festivals can be planned and delivered with confidence.
The package is open to both for-profit and not-for-profit music, screen, and arts festival companies.
Please read the NSW Festival Relaunch Package Guidelines before completing your application. The guidelines outline information on eligibility and application requirements, how much funding you can apply for, and how your application will be assessed.
Please note guidelines are current at the time of publication and may be subject to change.
To submit your application, you will need to complete and submit the relevant application form through our secure online grants system, SmartyGrants.
Applications open Wednesday 27 October 2021.
Applications close 5pm AEDT Wednesday 17 November 2021.
