Fire Aid raises more than $650,000 for bushfire relief6 February 2020 Media Release
Fremantle’s two Fire Aid benefit concerts have raised more than $650,000 for fire services, local communities and wildlife protection following the devastating bushfires around Australia. The first Fire Aid concert was held at Fremantle Arts Centre on 31 January featuring John Butler, The Waifs, San Cisco and Stella Donnelly. When the first show sold out in less than an hour a second show was added for 1 February, with Carla Geneve stepping in for Stella Donnelly. The concept for Fire Aid originated from the bands and their manager Phil Stevens, who said it was a direct reaction to the horrendous images of the fires and stories of people’s loss.
