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 email@example.com 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."

QMusic, Queensland's music industry development organisation, goes into overdrive this week with QMUSIC CONNECT: The Masterclass Series offering free live masterclasses featuring industry leaders and professionals from this Thursday 30 April at 5.30pm (AEST).
QMusic talks to Futuremag Music founder and editor Luke Byatt on starting a music publication built on Queensland’s writing and photography talent.
QMusic caught up with Luke Byatt who launched independent publication Futuremag Music in 2016 and who has grounded his roots in Australia’s media landscape as a niche tastemaker.
QMusic, Queensland’s music industry development association and producer of BIGSOUND and the Queensland Music Awards, has launched a series of free online workshops and masterclasses called QMUSIC CONNECT.
QMusic, a not-for-profit organisation, can complement the fiscal packages offered by state and federal governments by offering our services, programs and initiatives online. We are here to listen, advocate and be your support.
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.
