Live-streamed music festival Isol-Aid returns for its 42nd rendition this coming weekend, with four artists set to perform.
Announced for the bill this Sunday (January 31) are NME 100 member Ashwarya, neo-soul artist Kaiit, Gamilaraay singer Mitch Tambo and indie-pop artist Sloan Peterson. Performances kick off with Peterson from 5pm AEDT.
Isol-Aid performances are free to watch through each artist’s TikTok account, with the festival making the move from Instagram late last year.
“Working with this global platform means more creativity, more content, more collaboration and more fans for local musicians,” Isol-Aid founder Emily Ulman said in a statement at the time.
“There are vast numbers of music fans on TikTok worldwide and we have this amazing opportunity to facilitate the creation of content that helps artists connect with them.”
Just like previous editions of the festival, Isol-Aid is free to view, but audience members are encouraged to donate to the festival. All proceeds make their way back to the artists and their teams.
“As you know, the loss of touring and live performance income has caused financial strain and even strife for many in our music community,” festival organisers said.
“Throwing in even what you’d normally pay for a beer or two at the show will make a huge difference to these acts. And we’ll be eternally grateful, too!”
