Sydney Festival has joined those throwing support behind the Australian bushfire crisis, today revealing a huge local line-up for a last-minute benefit concert this weekend.
Regurgitator, Custard, Dan Sultan, The Neptune Power Federation, Polish Club and Art Vs Science will all perform at Metro Theatre this Saturday, with all funds raised going to the Red Cross Disaster Relief & Recovery Appeal and NSW Wildlife Information, Rescue & Education Service.
“Sydney Festival is part of our community and we have been heartened by the response of artists involved in this year’s Festival to show support to all those involved in keeping our community safe and giving people hope,” Festival Director Wesley Enoch said.
“We know climate change is real. We’re living it and our communities are living it and artists can help make a difference. Putting on this concert is our small way of helping raise much-needed funds for those suffering the effects of this unprecedented fire season.”
With its official launch this Wednesday, Sydney Festival will raise funds with collections across its entire three-week run.
