All the money raised through the concert, which organisers hope will be televised, is going to Rural Aid which is a foundation who helps support rural communities and farmers, including the Buy A Bale program.
The benefit concert, named ‘Hay Mate: Buy A Bale – A Concert For The Farmers’, will take place at Scully Park in Tamworth, on Saturday, 27th October. Guy Sebastian and John Farnham will be playing the event, as well as country singer Adam Harvey, with other acts still to be announced. The event is organised by Farnham’s manager, Glenn Wheatley.
This comes after Newcastle’s Scene & Heard festival announced they’d be offering free tickets to drought-affected farmers, as well as having donation tins at the entrance to the festival.
The full details of ‘Hay Mate: Buy A Bale’ to be announced this week.
