Are you a music fan? We want to hear from you.

We know that the Northern Territory is home to a vibrant and growing music scene, but we also know there is more to be done to help it thrive. Which is why MusicNT, thanks to support from the Northern Territory Government, is developing the first contemporary music strategy for the Northern Territory.

The decision to develop the strategy came after the release of the Economic and Cultural Value of Live Music in the Northern Territory report. It confirmed that the NT has a higher than national average return on investment per spend on live music.

That is not to say our live music scene is not without its unique challenges and the aim of the plan will be to develop a shared-vision on how we can grow opportunities for artists, the industry, venues, communities and music fans.

And we want to hear from you. By taking this short survey you will be helping us better understand the music scene across the NT and playing a key roll in shaping its future. Thank you!
