Colour us every single shade of keen: Camp Cope lead a wonderfully eclectic lineup for a brand new Sydney charity event called Voices. The event is primarily “a celebration of female and LGTBQIA+ musicians”, and as all the musicians on the bill are graciously donating their time, all proceeds will go to the Safe Steps Family Violence Response Centre.
Its origins are humble – Voices blossoming out of a planning project students at the Australian Institute of Music were undertaking – but its intentions are undeniably commendable, and its execution looks VERY promising too.
Also gracing the event’s two stages will be electro-soul goddess and recent FBi Radio Independent Artist Of The Week Jannah Beth, beach punk purveyors Scabz, Newcastle duo Hey Lady! and many more. And if for some reason all that isn’t enough to get you on side, there’s gonna be lip-smacking vegan food from My Little Panda Kitchen (seriously, even if you’re not vegan do yourself a favour and check out their site… pure insanity), great prizes ranging from a bridge climb ticket all the way up to a guitar signed by Courtney Barnett, and plenty of chances to indulge your inner child in the form of giant Jenga and… a Mother. Flippin’. BOUNCY. CASTLE.
Alright, we’re convinced. If you’re not, I dunno what to tell you. Maybe you’re not a fun person? Fine, prove me wrong and RSVP to the Facebook event here.
