Fire Fight Australia will raise money for the Australian bushfire relief with an epic nine-hour concert

A Live Aid-esque stadium concert has been announced to raise money for the Australian bushfire relief.

Tickets are on sale now and all profits go toward national bushfire relief, including: rural and regional fire services, Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recover and RSPCA Bushfire Appeal. If you can’t attend but still want to make a donation, you can do so here.

Elsewhere, Fit For An Autopsy raised over $6000 for World Wildlife Fund Australia by selling left over merchandise.

The Ghost Inside also held a fundraising event in Victoria, Australia, this week ahead of their set at UNIFY Gathering. “There’s no way we could come here at this time, see what’s going on, and not try to do our part,” said the band.
