Today I recognise a group within my electorate supporting the Labor Loves Live Music campaign. It is all about understanding that when we support live music we bring people together, we give a platform to young and emerging artists, we foster positive and safe environments for people to enjoy themselves and have a good night out, and we build Sydney's reputation as one of the world's great creative cities. I recently joined Labor Loves Live Music to march with the 4,000-strong crowd through the streets of Sydney in support of our nightlife. We made the point that live music attracts more than 42 million attendances at major ticketed events, pubs, bars, clubs and cafes across Australia; that live music generates more than $1.2 billion in spending nationwide, much of it in Sydney; and that live music makes Sydney a fun and better place to live. I congratulate Keep Sydney Open and the musicians and community members who took part.
