QMusic is proud of our local music industry who are putting on benefit gigs raising money for the bushfire communities.
Our hearts go out to all those that have suffered.
Here's a roundup of some of the best benefit concerts fundraising money to assist with the continued fight and recovery of Australia's fire-affected areas. Take the opportunity to enjoy some great live music and assist those who need our help!
If there's one we've missed, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll help spread the word!
From fundraiser organiser Neil Morris;
"As Fires have struck the East Coast of this sacred land recently it has lead to significant destruction and loss of masses of flora and fauna and sadly the lives of peoples. Very sadly, many First Nations people's have been affected by these tragic circumstances with losses of homes/ severe damage to property and important parts of the landscape.
This fundraiser was initiated and maintained by Neil Morris, a Yorta Yorta, First Nations man. He is a community rights and empowerment advocate for my fellow First Nations peoples. In his work in this capacity, he has developed this Fundraiser with direct consultation with and upon the request of Fire affected First Nations Communities across Eastern parts of so called Australia such as Gippsland and the South Coast of NSW."

Australia’s live performance industry needs an assurance from the Federal Government it will be included in the next economic stimulus package. This is urgently required to prevent a complete and permanent industry shutdown, costing thousands of jobs and forcing the closure of performing arts and commercial companies and venues for good.
The 2020 Queensland Music Awards (QMAs) took place last night at The Fortitude Music Hall celebrating the artistic and commercial success of Queensland music over the last 12 months, featuring performances from some of the best the state has to offer including Jaguar Jonze, Cub Sport, Nat Dunn, Busby Marou and Order Sixty6.
Members of Powderfinger, Violent Soho, Regurgitator, Jeremy Neale, The Grates’ Patience Hodgson, Sahara Herald and Mel Buttle (plus one or two names that we’re not allowed to say…)
