Frankston Music Festival past director

grant will be a “huge boost” for the city’s music community.

The new Frankston Music Community Network has welcomed a $28,000 grant from Frankston City Council, with Frankston Music Festival past director Robert Thurley describing it as a “huge boost” for the industry.  

“The COVID-19 pandemic has wrought a terrible impact on our beloved live music scene,” Mr Thurley said. “The lockdowns have hit our previously vibrant music community hard and this grant from Frankston City Council will provide a huge boost at a time it’s needed the most. Council’s grant is a huge assistance going forward.”

Mr Thurley said the network would become an active member of Music Victoria, and the grant would be partly used to maintain the network’s website. “Maintaining an online register of venues and performers is valuable to venues and musicians alike, and when anyone is looking for a suitable performer, there is much better transparency and a much wider range available depending on price and genre sought. The music market is much better served.”

Cr Liam Hughes said music was an integral part of Frankston City. “Live music enhances our lifestyle and brings joy, connection and community for residents and visitors in Frankston City,” Cr Hughes said. “We’re proud to support our talented musicians with this grant to help establish the new Frankston Music Community Network, which will develop local talent and performance opportunities.”
