Southbound support for south west fires

Fire Appeal

The Southbound festival was cancelled this weekend due to the massive bush fires in the state’s south west. Some of the artists who were due to perform at the festival have volunteered their time for a charity gig that will raise money for those effected by the fires.

Performing at the gig tomorrow night will be Birds of Tokyo, San Cisco, Koi Child, Bloc Party and Disclosure.

The latest news from the organisers is the show is close to selling out, so move quickly if you want to show your support.
