Down to Earth: A Fire and Climate Relief Concert
Catch Thelma Plum, Briggs, Gang Of Youths and Tash Sultana at this huge climate action and bushfire relief concert.
Climate action and bushfire relief are set to score plenty of live, loud support, when a group of legendary Aussie artists takes the stage at Sidney Myer Music Bowl for a huge fundraiser gig next month. Kicking off at 2pm on Wednesday, February 26, Down To Earth: A Fire and Climate Relief Concert will see a superstar lineup singing its lungs out for a cause that's currently hitting very close to Aussie hearts.
Acclaimed acts including Thelma Plum, Angus and Julia Stone, Briggs, Gang Of Youths, Ruby Fields, Jack River and Tash Sultana are banding together to raise much-needed fire relief funds, while also drumming up awareness about climate change.
You're in for a rollicking day of live tunes, with 100 percent of ticket, merchandise and bar profits being donated. Much of the funds will be used to provide immediate support for bushfire-affected communities via the Australian Red Cross and WIRES. But in a nod to the country's future protection, a portion of profits will also go to helping local organisations focused on long-term climate solutions, leadership and education. That includes groups like Emergency Leaders for Climate Action, the Indigenous-led Firesticks Alliance and the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal.
Tickets are on sale from 10am Thursday, January 9 via Ticketek. The price has not yet been announced.
