Minister for Employment, Investment, Tourism and Western Sydney Stuart Ayres says the event is an exciting prospect for music fans that will bring live entertainment back to New South Wales and give a major boost to the regional economies.

“The caliber of artists now raising their hands to be part of Great Southern Nights underlines the huge appetite for live music from artists and fans alike.”

Great Southern Nights will feature more than 500 COVID-safe performances in approximately 350 venues, nearly half of which will be staged in regional NSW, which will be a huge boost for those regional economies and the fans to see their favorite artists live performance,” Ayres explained.
