The festival, streamed live from a venue that strictly observes social distancing rules, will premiere on Delivered, Live’s YouTube channel.

Delivered, Live is free for all to watch, but viewers are encouraged to purchase tickets through Oztix. According to a press statement, all proceeds will “help support the creative industries impacted by the coronavirus, including artists, managers, sound engineers and support staff”. Audience members will also be able to see how the income from ticket sales is distributed, per the event website.

To date, Delivered, Live has raised over $320,000 which has been injected back into the live music economy. Four additional episodes are planned to be aired over the next month.

Last week’s episode featured a lineup of Pollyman, Olympia, Kate Ceberano and comedians Josh Earl and Sami Shah.
