Save NSW Festivals!

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian is waging a war on festivals that will see many of our much loved festivals closing their doors or moving interstate.

New unnecessary licensing requirements are being proposed by the Berejiklian government with no consultation with those who will be most affected. 

We've already heard about the closure of Mountain Sounds and PsyFari. These festivals make important contributions to regional economies. Many other festivals are indicating they can no longer afford to continue to operate as a result of the new licensing regime.

Music festivals have been a core part of our cultural identity here in NSW for decades. Not only do we risk losing them to other states, but also the thousands of jobs and millions of dollars that go with them.

Thank you for taking action,

Tell Gladys to stop her war on festivals

We've been told that a new licensing regime for festivals will come into force from March 1st.

This means the Premier can choose to not bring it in at all if enough of us act quickly. 

We're calling on the Premier to reverse her decision to impose new, over the top, license requirements on festivals in NSW.

We're hearing that this will cause festivals across the state to shut down or relocate to other states in order to survive.
