Individual Giving

“The Festival is an event of national significance: stimulating, provocative and deeply satisfying at so many levels.” Vincent Plush, The Australian, 9 May 2017

Our goal is to change the way people think about live art music. But we can’t do it alone.

Income from individual donations contributes directly to the quality of our artistic programming and the calibre of international and Australian musicians we are able to bring to the Festival. Your support helps us to pursue exciting new collaborations, nurture our young artists and create new Australian music.

Ticket sales only cover 40% of our annual costs, so we are heavily reliant on the support we receive from those of you who share our vision for the Festival. We think music should be accessible to all members of our community. Donations help keep our ticket prices affordable and allow us to program free events.

Every donation large or small is greatly appreciated. All donations over $2.00 in support of our festival are tax deductible (you will receive a tax invoice).

All donations of $500 and above and received before 31 March 2019 will be acknowledged in our 2019 Festival program. All donations will be acknowledged on our website. We respect your privacy and you can nominate to remain anonymous.
