The extension of COVID-19 restrictions in Greater Sydney and neighbouring communities have created headaches for musicians and live performances.

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian announced on Moinday the current public health orders and restrictions would remain in replace until May 19. 

Singing, dancing and standing inside an indoor venue have been put on hold while capped capacity limits have limited crowds. 

This has had a flow-on effect and impacted the music industry who again now enter an unknown period where gigs are either being cancelled or they are on standby until further notice.

Kane Hines, a member of the Illawarra based band, the Vandastruts, said the restrictions were not fair for musicians when compared to those in place for athletes and other industries.

“I just don’t think it’s fair that there are limited restrictions placed on sporting events and us musicians can’t even perform in front of a small crowd of people,” Mr Hines said.
