NSW Music Tour Venues

NSW

 

I can never find music touring circuits on the net so I thought I’d make some. Everyone likes being patriotic at times; so I thought why not get known in your own State first? You only need 1000 real fan right?

The smaller towns I’d probably stay away from busking; just because Owners want to get their money’s worth and in tight knit communities it’s hard to go unrecognized. Saying that, things like Tamworth’s Country Music Festival they have Busking competitions and you can busk all day through it.

I’ve added Bathurst and Armidale because their UNI towns; and I’ve heard you can get crowds there. Still I wonder why there are only 18 000 profession musicians in Australia if you do say 4 shows a week and teach I can’t see why the $82k average Australian wage is so unattainable. A musician should be by now a respectable profession.

Any questions or suggestions please leave a comment.
