To assist the hundreds of rural firies sweating their asses off fighting blazes in New South Wales, the cream of Australia's rock crop are banding together to put on a benefit concert up in Byron Bay.
Featuring Bernard Fanning, Tim Rogers, Wolfmother and the Antipodean Rock Collective (featuring members of You Am I, JET and Powderfinger), the Make It Rain – Fund The Firies Benefit 2020 is set to take over Byron Bay's Beach Hotel for two nights back-to-back.
In addition to the back-to-back music, there's also an auction taking place to help raise further funds for the NSW RFS - because some limp-dick dead shit in Parliament keeps cutting funding to rural fire brigades. The auction is set to feature items donated by a number of big name Australian celebrities, including Chris Hemsworth, Powderfinger, Pat Rafter, Mick Fanning and more. There's even a damn songwriting session with Bernard Fanning himself up for grabs, and that, ladies and gentlemen, is hard to top.
Check out the dates and details below.
