A stellar line-up of local Australian music and comedic talent came together to launch the NTIA’s Unite for the Campaign on Thursday 7th March, with a fundraising gig at Sydney’s Metro Theatre.
The line-up included live sets from Josh Pyke, I know Leopard, Gordi, Kav Temperley (Eskimo Joe) and Wallace. While comedians Matt Okine, Tom Ballard, Mel Buttle and Cameron James delivered the laughs.
Unite for the Night asks government to cut non-sensical regulation and calls for night time industries to work together, but most importantly the campaign challenges punters to get off the couch and use the night time ecology… or otherwise risk losing it.
The campaign encourages voter awareness around the major parties night time and music policies ahead of the NSW state election (23rd March) through many means, but most visibly through our scorecard.
