Ahead of their launch this Wednesday, Sydney Festival has today announced a bushfire relief concert at the Metro Theatre on Saturday 11 January.
Featuring a mix of artists performing at the festival and their friends, the Bushfire Appeal will feature local music artists Regurgitator, Custard, Dan Sultan, Neptune Power Federation, Polish Club and Art Vs. Science.
‘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,’ says Festival Director, Wesley Enoch.
‘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.’
Band manager and co-organiser Paul Curtis echoed Enoch’s words: “Australia has been struck at the heart by the long-term impact of inaction on the changing climate. Right now, people, wildlife and the environment are suffering immense devastation like it has at no other time in our history and we want to use our meagre power and abilities to help those that are suffering through this.”
All artists, crew, venue and suppliers are volunteering their services for the event, with all funds raised going to the Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Appeal – providing support for thousands of people in bushfire evacuation centres in Victoria and New South Wales; and WIRES – Australia’s largest wildlife rescue organisation.
Additionally, Sydney Festival will focus all its fundraising efforts across the festival on raising funds for the appeal with collections being facilitated at major events – including Symphony Under the Stars at the Crescent Parramatta and Dodecalis at Darling Harbour – as well post performances taking place at multiple venues over the coming three weeks.”

Cost: From $20 (all funds will go to Red Cross)
“I was sitting at my kitchen table the day before Christmas Eve, contemplating the footage we had all been seeing for some time – the loss and devastation and the personal suffering caused by an unprecedented scale of bushfires that were devouring whole portions of Australia – and I felt that I had to do something. All of us want to do something; but I realised I had the power of public recognition and that I had a lot of friends in the music and entertainment industry with a lot more of that power than me, and the idea of FireAid2020 ‘The Concert’ was born.
As much as raising funds, this FireAid2020 concert is about community spirit; about unconditional love for each other; about fire-in-the-belly action. Rock on, Australia. And having started with this, Let’s look to correcting the mistakes of the past. Let’s take care of this land, this planet, and our children’s future. – JOHN WATERS
FireAid2020 is a concert with a festival vibe. The special atmosphere that binds us together in this venture to heal the hurt of disastrous bushfires, is a feeling of how communities react in crisis. With positivity, and let’s face it, a feeling of joy that we at least have each other in times like this.
All the funds raised by FireAid2020 will go to the Red Cross and be distributed to the Southern Highlands and south Coast areas, reaching the newly homeless, heroic RFS firefighters and their families, and all those most in need.
Extra cash collections will be made by accredited volunteers carrying buckets. All paper money donations to these buckets are greatly valued and appreciated. They are only there for what everybody feels they can afford. Your presence at our huge party is in itself a great contribution to this cause.”
