Live Performance Australia

Live Performance Australia (LPA) is the peak body for the live performance industry. Founded in 1917, the organisation has been servicing the needs and promoting the interest of the industry for almost 100 years. LPA focuses on workplace relations, policy and programs, industry codes and guidelines, professional development, and events and awards.

Media Super has been working with LPA for many years and the LPA has representation on the fund’s Trustee Board.

We support the annual Ticket Attendance and Revenue Survey, the most comprehensive survey of ticket sales for Australian live events, covering ticket sales and attendance across all major performance genres and regions. This survey informs and provides substance to the industry’s planning and lobbying work and is a critical benchmark on the consumption of live performance by the Australian public.

Media Super also supports the Helpmann Awards, which are Australia’s premier national awards for the live performance industry. The Helpmanns recognise artistic achievement and excellence in the many disciplines of Australia’s vibrant live performance sectors. The Helpmanns also incorporate the JC Williamson and Sue Nattrass Awards for outstanding contribution to the Australian live performance industry.
