Melbourne Digital Concert Hall was launched on March 27 and has raised to date $400,000 for artists in Australia in just 12 weeks. We have been overwhelmed by the support and want to be able to support musicians in other states by setting up a portable digital concert hall.
Unfortunately, with this second wave concert halls aren’t going to be opening soon and so this COVID-19 crisis will continue for the artists. Continuing to support artists and connect concert attendees is vitally important as we try to do our part in rebuilding our industry.
The funds are designed to support the costs of presenting 7 concerts a week between now and the end of August. These concerts will be held in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney.
