This one-day Inner West music festival is raising urgent funds for the NSW bushfire crisis

Play, Sydney / 9 December 2019

Head to Hose Down Festival this weekend, with all proceeds donated to RFS NSW and WIRES.

It’s been one of the hottest starts to summer the country has ever seen. With more than 100 blazes still burning across the state and fire fighting resources stretched to the limit, this summer is set to be one of the toughest bushfire seasons we’ve witnessed to date. And for Sydneysiders who’ve been coughing through weeks of smoke blanketing the city, the visible signs of this bushfire crisis have never been more apparent.

But for those looking to give back to those who’ve been at the front line of the firefighting effort, this is the event for you. On Saturday, December 14th, a stellar line up of iconic local bands will be coming together for a one-day festival at the historic Flour Mill of Summer Hill. The Hose Down Festival is a live music fundraiser set to raise much-needed funds to support the Rural Fire Service (RFS) and WIRES volunteers across the state.

From 11am to 6pm, Sydneysiders are invited to do their bit to raise funds for this emergency with all proceeds from tickets sold going directly towards the firefighting effort. The Hose Down Festival will deliver an epic afternoon of entertainment with live music, craft beer and local eats, making this a community event not to be missed.

Across the afternoon, local acts will be taking to the stage including Andy Golledge, AUSTRALIA – The BandMonkey SpannerThe MorrisonsTenderfootEasy Street and much more.
