More underage, mixed-age, gigs for Victoria

As a result of discussions by the Live Music Roundtable, the Victorian state Government is passing legislation to make it easier for promoters to run underage and mixed-age gigs on licensed premises.

Instead of getting bureaucratic approval, they merely advice liquor authorities seven days before. There’ll also be the creation of a new category of alcohol-free youth events for patrons aged 12 to 25.

Music Victoria CEO Patrick Donovan called it “a massive outcome” which meant under-age fans could rock out in “safe environments, rather than at uncontrolled warehouse or house parties.”
