Disclosure, Bloc Party and Birds of Tokyo will gather at Perth Stadium on Sunday night for a benefit for victims of the fires raging near Perth.
The Southbound Festival scheduled for this weekend was a last minute cancellation yesterday as a result of the fires.
More acts are expected to be added to the show on Sunday night.
Southbound Fire Fundraiser details
We’ve been overwhelmed with the support shown over the last 24 hours since our announcement that Southbound 2016 has had to be cancelled due to high fire risk within the area. A bunch of our incredible international and local artists who were en route to entertain Southbound patrons have offered to play a special benefit show to help raise much needed funds for those affected by the bushfire situation in the South West. 100% of the net proceeds will be donated to the victims of the South West bush fires.
Sunday 10th January
DISCLOSURE DJ SET
BIRDS OF TOKYO
plus more Southbound friends to be announced shortly
HBF Stadium Perth
Tickets $99 from Ticketmaster // On sale from 2pm Saturday 9th January
Gates Open at 5pm
Stay tuned on more information and times to be released shortly.
Feedback has been received with patrons wanting to donate their ticket refund to those affected by the fire and with the issue of excess food on site we have been working to transport meal to those affected.
Our catering partner Ultimo Catering & Events have generously donated over 2300 meals and along with stock from sponsors; Icebreak & Redbull, will be mobilising their truck to Waroona within the hour.
In regards to donations, Moshtix are helping us find a way to assist those local communities and families who have been devastated by the fires. Patrons will soon be able to donate their Southbound ticket refunds or any nominated amount, to a nominated bushfire relief fund (details to follow). Information on full ticket refunds will be available by Wednesday 13th January, which will include further information on how to donate through the moshtix platform.
Sunset Events encourage everyone to stay safe, show their support and donate to this worthy cause. Our hearts go out to the local communities and families.
