Jamie xx and The Avalanches to throw climate change benefit in Sydney
Climate change has manifested in many ways, with a recent instance being the bush fires ravaging Australia. To give back to the country after the toll on its ecosystem—and to raise funds to fight climate change in general—Jamie xx and The Avalanches have announced a benefit concert in Sydney, Australia. The one-off “No Coal Zone” show takes place on March 14, and will also see the first appearance of The Midnight Juggernauts in six years.
Jamie xx and The Avalanches have chosen ClientEarth to receive all proceeds, which the non-proft will use toward lobbying efforts against big energy and in holding governments accountable for environmental abuse. Guests will also be able to see an exclusive screening of The Four Worlds, a film by Mark Pritchard and Jonathan Zawada.
Voiced Jamie of the concert efforts:
“I’ve spent a lot of time in Australia over the past decade and each time I come I’m inspired to make music. 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 has 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. ”
