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."

The Australian music industry is a delicate ecosystem at risk of total collapse unless it receives critical life support. The success of Australia’s live music industry lies in the people who make the show go on - the technicians, engineers, managers, hiring companies and more - those who are COVID’s invisible victims.
