In times of crisis it is imperative that we stick together and help each other out in whatever ways we can. At present there are countless people across Australia that have fallen on hard times due to the COVID-19 Global Pandemic and the immense loss of income that has ensued, is rising every day.
One industry that, in the best interests of the country, has essentially been shut down for the forseeable future, is our Australian Music Industry. And whilst this is absolutely necessary, the financial devastation caused to your average musician or crew member cannot be overstated.
For every concert & event that we’ve seen cancelled in recent days, there are countless people losing work. It’s not just the musicians up on stage, but the sound & lighting engineers, artist & tour managers, crew members, venue bookers, concert promoters & many more who all of a sudden have no way to pay their bills or provide for their families.
These people need our help. And they need our help right now. That’s why we’re partnering with Support Act to raise funds so that financial grants can be delivered to those in need. So for every person that had a concert ticket refunded.
For every person that planned to attend a gig in the upcoming weeks & months.
To all Australian music lovers, wherever you may be in the world!
We call on you today to take a few of those dollars that you would have spent and DONATE TODAY to the Australian Music Industry COVID-19 Relief Fund.
