Huge news Sydney, a mammoth one-night climate change concert is descending on the Hordern Pavilion this month and it’s very casually sporting one hell of a line-up.
The concert has been dubbed “No Coal Zone”, with all proceeds from tickets going towards ClientEarth (a leading environmental law charity that aims to stop the building of future coal-fired power stations) and Immersive Climate Education. And, if this sounds like something you’re passionate about supporting, just brace yourself for the insane list of artists locked to join the cause.
The pool of talent includes inimitable UK DJ and producer Jamie XX, The Avalanches (DJ set), Midnight Juggernauts (DJ set), Heaps Gay and Friends, Sydney’s very own Ptwiggs and Deep Faith. To top it off, there’ll also be a special screening of “The Four Worlds”, a mesmerising audiovisual and collab between Australian-based producer Mark Pritchard and visual artist Jonathan Zawada.
“I’ve spent a lot of time in Australia over the past decade and each time I come I’m inspired to make music,” Jamie XX said in a statement. “I’m always blown away by its awe-inspiring nature, the unrivalled friendliness of its people and the quality of its Doofs. The loss it’s suffered has been a blow to people all around the world, so it felt only right to come back this year and help raise money through this party.”
“The work ClientEarth [is] doing to stop the building of future coal-fired power stations will hugely cut the planet’s carbon emissions and will help to slow the devastating effects of global warming”.
