FISHER Raises Over $100k For Australian Brush Fire Relief With Sydney Pop-Up Show

|||,

Australian artists are stepping up in huge ways in the music industry this past week in response to the horrid brush fires that are raging across their country. Just yesterday, Flume made a major, $100,000 donation to the WIRES wildlife rescue foundation. Another one of Australia’s beloved DJs, FISHER, has taken action as well by hosting an impromptu show in his hometown of Sydney.

Sydney, this Sunday 12th Jan I’m throwing DANCE FOR DISASTER BUSHFIRE APPEAL at THE IVY. I’ll be playing a 5 hour extended set! 100% OF THE DOOR/100% OF THE BAR

Last night, the Fish confirmed the show was happening at the Ivy, with 100% of the profits from tickets and the bar going to the Red Cross. After announcing that he’d be playing an extended 5 hour set, the show sold out in just a matter of minutes. This increased the total amount of money raised to over $100,000.

THANK YOU SYDNEY!! ALL SOLD OUT.

Although the damage these fires has caused is heartbreaking, it’s inspiring to see Australia banding together to fight them. Keep on fighting, Australia. We’re with you.
