Important Information Required

  |   News


PAC Australia are urgently requesting venues across the country provide initial data to inform the sector-wide call to government for emergency funding.

We promise it’s a very short survey, asking for estimated data only. The responses to this survey will also allow the industry to track the venues which are entering a complete shut-down period.

We realise the unprecedented workload you are currently facing, however we are requesting you provide some initial, estimated figures on the events that have been cancelled, or you anticipate will be cancelled. (This is different to the data gathered from ilostmygig).

Start the survey here.

We know this data-gathering may seem premature and realise you are knee-deep in negotiating cancellations and refunds at this very moment. However, even estimated numbers at this juncture are vitally important – the information you supply will be used to provide data directly to the government in meetings taking place this week.

Live performance industry calls for a rescue package

Ideally, we need you to respond by Tuesday morning, however there is no closing date for this survey. Please respond as soon as you possibly can.

We will be asking for updated numbers in the coming weeks to track the ongoing impact so we can update government and our industry colleagues accordingly.


Thank you for providing this crucial information.
