The roll over from 2019 to 2020 has brought with it harsh and devastating bushfires that have strewn out along South Australia, Victoria and New South Wales. Australia is burning but its citizens, artists, volunteers, creatives and workers are unifying for the greater good, pouring their hearts and pockets into bushfire appeals and charities to help communities withstand the conditions of these blazes.
Over the next couple of weeks, some incredible initiatives in the music industry are combatting the Australian fire crisis by curating fundraising events with some of the best artists and creative allies in the game.
If you’re not sure how to contribute to the cause, simply show up to one of the below events if you’re Sydney or Melbourne bound. Most of the below gigs are on the brink of selling out, so get in quick!
We’ve chucked some relevant donation links at the bottom of the blog if you want to chip in some coin right now in case you miss out on tickets.
We're throwing our own fundraiser in the coming weeks, keep an eye out.
