Big names in music to combine for bumper bushfire benefit gig

Some of the biggest names in Australian contemporary music will combine for a bushfire benefit gig next month, Fire Aid, in Adelaide.

Tim will join local luminaries Bad//Dreems, Mark of Cain and West Thebarton, alongside Pond, the re-formed Children Collide and ex-The Jezabels frontwoman Hayley Mary at the Lion Arts Factory on February 1 from 9am.

Aussie rock icon You Am I frontman Tim Rogers.

Hosted by former Recovery host Dylan Lewis, other acts include Dr Piffle & The Burlap Band with more set to be announced.

All proceeds from ticket, food, drink and local art sales will be donated to bushfire recovery.

Bad//Dreems guitarist Alex Cameron says the response from the music community has been overwhelming so far.

“We are fortunate to be in a position to do our bit to help South Australia rebuild in the wake of this summer’s tragedies,” Alex says.

“Almost every band on the bill has someone close to them personally affected by fires here or interstate, so it is a cause very dear to all of us.

“We look forward to not only raising a considerable amount to help those in need, but also showing our solidarity in addressing the cataclysmic threats to our environment.”
