Bushfire Benefit Shows

Thanks to everyone involved in benefit concerts to support fire relief charities. We've gone through all the Victorian events that have been sent to us and combined them into a Bushfire Benefit Gig Guide here! If we haven't included your event feel free to let us know and we'll add you to the list. Keep up the good work everyone. It's amazing to see the music community coming together and supporting those affected by the fires.
