Controversial lockout laws cause live music ticket sales to plummet by 40 PER CENT - as Australian musicians campaign to 'Keep Sydney Open'
Live music ticket sales in the Sydney lockout zone have plummeted by 40 per cent since the controversial laws were introduced by the NSW state government two years ago, a federal government report has found.
The 40 per cent fall in the Sydney CBD coincided with a 19 per cent decline in ticket sales across all live music venues and a 15 per cent drop in the amount venues spend on live performers.
The statistics are based on data collected from one year prior to the introduction of the lockout laws until earlier this month by APRA-AMCOS through the federal government's Live Music Office.
