South Coast musicians are being invited to apply for a share of $90,000 as part of the annual Make Music Day event.
The NSW Government is offering six grants worth $15,000 to coincide with Make Music Day on June 21.
Make Music Day originated in France in 1982 as the Fete de la Musique and now more than 1,000 cities around the world take part.
Minister for the Arts Don Harwin said these grants will ensure that artists can take part in a global celebration of music.
"NSW has an incredible calibre of live music acts to showcase to the world so we are inviting individuals, groups, bands, and more to apply," Mr Harwin said.
"This funding will be music to the ears of local musicians and their communities, who have been robbed of so many opportunities due to the pandemic."
The grants are jointly funded between the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment, and Create NSW.
Applications for the grants close on May 16.
