There’s no denying that when it comes to any live performance if it wasn’t for roadies, the wheels would most definitely fall off.
After a year that utterly decimated the Australian music industry those hard working roadies and crew who make those gigs we all love so much look so effortless need a hand more than ever.
And that’s where Roady4Roadies comes in.
The initiative, the brainchild of charity CrewCare, aims to bring public awareness to the diverse range of highly technical and creative skills that are required to get the show on the road while raising much needed funds to help those in crisis.
To that end Oz pub rock legends Spy V Spy will be hitting the Lizotte’s stage on Sunday 11 April alongside Justin Ngariki, Osprey, and Giant for a full day of full tilt rock.
The Lizotte’s show is one of ten Roady4Roadies events happening around the country and the day will kick off with the Roady4Roadies walk at Lambton Park before the procession heads to Lizotte’s for some great tunes.
All walk participants receive a free t-shirt and face mask, with sunscreen and bottled water available along the route.
This year, industry giants Chugg Entertainment, Live Nation Asia-Pacific, TEG Dainty, and Frontier Touring have banded together to donate tickers to the event for any crew member, and their family, who has found themselves unable to purchase tickets for any reason. Crew members who would like to attend should register here.
“In these hard times its important we support the 1000’s of crew that make it happen for us while they are going through very, very hard times. Roady4Roadies is an amazing event, make sure you get there,” Chugg Entertainment’s Michael Chugg said.
