Hermitude, Hoodzy, Horrorshow and more have announced a Sydney bushfire benefit concert called City Loves Country.
The hip-hop acts will play Sydney’s Enmore Theatre this Saturday (January 11). Nooky, Rebecca Hatch and Thundamentals are also on the bill, as are DJs Joyride, Kilimi and Jazmine Nikitta.
Proceeds from the show will go to the Fire Relief Fund for First Nations Communities. “The deep trauma being experienced by countless people on this land is made all the more horrible by sacred lands burning to ash,” a statement on the event page reads.
The venue initially announced for the fundraiser was the Factory Theatre, but was changed “due to overwhelming demand”. Tickets for the Factory Theatre will be honoured at the Enmore.
