The Live Entertainment Industry Forum (LEIF) was formed in 2020 by Australia’s biggest Promoters of Entertainment and Sport, Venue Managers, and Key Peak Bodies.

LEIF’s mission is to support the safe reactivation of events with live audiences across Australia as restrictions are eased. LEIF have launched a comprehensive, flexible, all-of-industry re-opening and risk management strategy that meets the needs of the public, governments and performers and industry, with safety at its core – see Guidelines here.

LEIF will work closely with governments, businesses and audiences to build confidence in the industry’s preparedness to operate safely, flexibly and sustainably and explore how industry can be supported by the government in a gradual return.

Live Entertainment Industry Forum (LEIF) would like to Acknowledge and pay respect to all First Nations peoples of this land, past, present and future. We acknowledge that their Sovereignty has not been ceded. 

We would also like to acknowledge the impact of this time to First Nations Peoples within live events. First Nations participation and performance in live events plays a crucial part in the fabric of this land and has done so for thousands of years.

We also acknowledge the impact of COVID-19 on First Nations peoples and in particular the impact on their practice of culture including participation and performance in live events. Through this difficult time we encourage you to support the work of First Nations peoples across the sector, as we consider their uniquely special value that is critical and central to culture and life on this land.
