A recent study by Live Performance Australia shows Australia's live performance industry contributes $1.2 billion to the Australian economy.   Almost 1/2 is down to box office receipts, 28.9% to corporate sponsorhip and 17.6% to government funding.   Contemporary Music is the highest sector contributing almost 1/3 ($830.9 million) to the total.

The study was based on 2012 figures and prepared by accountants EY (formerly Ernst & Young).
