Sydney’s Northern Beaches Council is staging a huge Rock Relief concert, featuring a line up of Aussie rock legends, at Brookvale Oval to support bushfire and drought-affected communities.

The all-ages show will kick off at 2pm on Saturday 15 February and aims to raise much-needed funds with all profits from the show, and booking fees through the ticketing agency Humanitix, to be donated to the Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery campaign. The Rural Fire Service (RFS) who have been partnering with Council at other summer events to raise funds, will also be onsite collecting for their bushfire appeal.

Showing their support for the devastated communities are some of the top names in Australian music, including Hoodoo Gurus, The Choirboys, The Superjesus, Christine Anu, Shannon Noll, Hot Dub Time Machine and many others. 

The full line up, along with all ticketing info can be found here. 

Mayor Michael Regan said the scale of the bushfire and drought devastation was shocking.

“I am really humbled by the generous response to Rock Relief. With this line-up it’s going to be a very special event and I know we can smash our $1 million fundraising target.

Multi-award winning, singer and songwriter Christine Anu says it’s times like this we need to connect and help each other.

“Like the millions all over the world, I too have looked on with devastation as these bushfires ravage our country. In times like these, Australians are so good at coming together like one big family to support each other.

“I’m thrilled to be a part of Rock Relief, knowing that it will raise some much-needed funds and bring people together. Let’s focus on connection and community when we need it most,” she said.
