The Adelaide Bushfire Benefit Concert is the latest show announced in recent days in support of bushfire relief. Acts from the now-cancelled Falls Festival at Lorne recently banded together to play several shows yesterday night (December 30) in support of the Country Fire Authority (CFA) of Victoria, with three more scheduled for tonight.
American singer Halsey, British alt-rocker Yungblud and Peking Duk also played impromptu shows over the weekend in place of their scheduled performances at Falls Festival.
