Welcome 2019

Welcome to 2019 and our first newsletter! We hope you've had a fabulous Christmas and New Year.

Roady4Roadies takes place nationally in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth on Sun 10th March and Adelaide on Sun 24th March. It's open to the public and industry alike, with 100% of ALL profit going to the Support Act 'Roadies' fund for road crew who may have fallen on hard times.

The day commences with a leisurely walk in each capital city to their chosen venue, culminating in a family day of fun, education and entertainment. Following a BBQ, the Crewathlon, prizes and Roady Games for the kids, there'll be educational presentations on the vital and creative roles crew play in live music performance, concluding with live entertainment from participating artists.

The walks will be monitored by a volunteer crew and paramedics. So put on some walking shoes and put your hand in your pocket for this worthy cause, an often forgotten sector of the Australian concert/touring business.


The Roady4Roadies Wall of Support continues to build with artists and industry figures all coming together and showing support for their crew. We welcome any Artist, Band, Manager, Promoter or Industry Professional to send in a a selfie in your fave black T-shirt and become a Roady4Roadies for those who support all in the industry.
