During the 2019 to 2020 fire season, more than 26 million acres in Australia, an area roughly the size of South Korea, has been scorched by fire.
Since the season began, the fires have destroyed more than 2,200 homes and left at least 27 people, while dealing a catastrophic blow to the nation’s wildlife with estimates that more than 1 billion animals were killed in the fires.
In response to the devastating bushfires currently sweeping across the country, the Australian Music Community will band together once again under the unified banner of Sound Relief 2020. Stay tuned for more information soon.
