TEG Dainty has already received $750,000 last July for the tour being postponed. That’s $1.35 million in Australian government funding for an Australian promoter to tour an international band.

Other successful applications this round include promoter Loudness, who received $824,000 for its regional Wine Machine festival; The Rubens, who received $227,600 for their festival Valleyways; and the Gympie Music Muster, who received $1 million to revitalise the event after a two-year COVID hiatus.
