Gathering up a heap of fellow Aussie talent, actor and singer John Waters (no, not that one) is putting on a huge day-long bushfire benefit concert for the Southern Highlands. Hosted by Julia Zemiro, FireAid2020 will raise money for the fire-ravaged community — where Waters lives and where many have lost their homes.

On the bill: Waters himself, plus Daryl Braithwaite, John Paul Young, Megan Washington, Jack Jones, Margaret Urlich and Leo Sayer. Expect to hear classic tracks such as 'Horses' and 'Love Is in the Air', as well as a heap of Leonard Cohen — with the latter coming courtesy of Stewart D'Arrietta.

It all takes place on Friday, January 24 at the Bong Bong Picnic Racecourse in Bowral, with gates opening at 2pm. And your $65 ticket will go to a good — and local — cause, with net proceeds being donated to the Red Cross Bushfire Relief, specifically directed to the Southern Highland division.

If you're road tripping down south for the night (or weekend), it's a good chance to visit and support some local businesses affected by the fires — the Spend With Them Instagram account is helping to call out many of them.
