City Loves Country
Hermitude, Horrowshow, Thundamentals and Nooky come together to raise funds for First Nations peoples affected by the bushfires.
UPDATE: JANUARY 7, 2020 — This event was originally set to be held at Marrickville's Factory Theatre, but it sold out in an hour. It has now been moved to The Enmore, which has a bigger capacity — meaning more tickets have gone on sale. The article has been updated to reflect this.
Some of Sydney's favourite musicians are coming together for a one-off bushfire relief fundraising night. Taking over The Enmore on Saturday, January 11, City Loves Country will see the likes of hip hop duos Hermitude and Horrorshow, rappers Hoodzy and Nooky, Samoan and Indigenous Australian singer Rebecca Hatch and Thundamentals all taking the stage for a good cause.
They'll be joined by a slew of top DJs — including Joyride, Kilimi and Jazmine Nikitta — with all profits from the event going to the Fire Relief Fund for First Nations Communities.
The GoFundMe, started by Yorta Yorta man Neil Morris, is raising money for First Nations peoples on the east coast who have been affected by the bushfires. Many have had their homes destroyed or have been forced to evacuate and seek temporarily living arrangements.
Tickets to the event will set you back $50.
