Big Names Join Support Act Campaign
Some of Australia’s biggest rock acts have joined a Pozible crowd-funding appeal called Bandwagon to raise A$100,000 ($93,780) in a month for the music industry’s benevolent fund, Support Act Ltd.
Artists including The Church, Cut Copy, Tina Arena, John Butler, Mondo Rock, and The Seekers are offering paintings, tickets, merchandising, birthday phone calls and mentorships.
