We send our love to all of our friends in the music, sports and events industry who are facing an extremely tough time in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis.
There is so much uncertainty ahead. However, in challenging times, events people shine – and we will pull through this, supporting each other, and banding together.
To our friends, clients and partners – we are in this together.
Gathering is a key part of being human. Whether it’s for a local sports game or a music festival, events play a crucial role in our sense of belonging.
When circumstances outside your control force you to postpone your event, remember that you were the reason people wanted to get together. The passion, dedication, and skills that made you an event creator will make your community better for it.
It’s important to remember that after all of this, like us, everyone will be raring to go out again. And we’ll be here when the events industry bounces back.
How you can help:
→ If you are in the position to be able to, we ask that you #keepyourticket to any rescheduled concerts or events, as you’ll be supporting not only the bands, but the venues, agents and so many more who work tirelessly behind the scenes. Doing this helps keep the industry that brings joy to so many people alive.
→ If you had a ticket to a cancelled show or can spare a few bucks, you can help the struggling Aussie music industry by donating to the Support Act COVID-19 Emergency Appeal.
→ Buy tickets to future local events. Not only will this help out the struggling industry today, but this will also give you something to look forward to!
→ Buy merchandise and music to help stimulate businesses as directly as possible. Purchasing directly from artist’s official websites or though portals like Bandcamp is a good way to ensure the creators receive the bulk of the purchase price.
→ When the threat of COVID-19 has diminished to a manageable level, artists and entertainment workers will be back doing what they do; investing all their energy and money in bringing music and events to people across the world. When new events go on sale, don’t hesitate: buy a ticket.
