Thousands of music lovers made their way to Hyde Park on Thursday night to protest the NSW Government’s recent policy changes to the functioning of the live music industry.

The speakers, including former Wiggle Murray Cook, The Presets’ Julian Hamilton and festival organiser Adelle Robinson, encouraged participants to use their voting power in the upcoming NSW State Election.

The rally also featured performances by leading Australian bands including The Rubens, Cloud Control and Triple J’s Hottest 100 winners, Ocean Alley.
