'Make It Rain: A Community Festival for Bushfire Aid' is a collaborative effort to raise much-needed funds to repair the damage from these fires to our beautiful country.
In times of need, community strength shines its brightest - and Australia's devastating bushfire crisis needs as much help as it can get. This 1-day festival event brings together the cream of a very creative Melbourne crop, offering interactive experiences and entertainment from midday to midnight!
With thanks to The Third Day at North Melbourne for generously partnering with us to make this happen, and donating all profits from their bar - so drink up!
ENTERTAINMENT... we've got an insane lineup for you lucky people!!
Special guest DJs include none other than KODIAK KID, alongside the likes of DJ Mickey Space & the Space Cadets, Lickweed and more to be announced in the coming weeks.
We'll also be treated to roving by the First Lady of Bubbles, Becky Bubble and an incredible cast of cabaret superstars, curated by the amazing Alikeen Killer. WATCH THIS SPACE!!!

WHICH ORGANISATIONS ARE WE SUPPORTING?
1) Animal Rescue Collective (https://mkc.org.au/donations/trcqld)
It is estimated well over half a BILLION animals have perished so far in the bushfires. Those that remain have lost their habitats, and therefore have no food or shelter. Countless others need urgent medical attention. ARC will drop 10 tonne of food to starving animals in burned our bushland every fortnight. Water. Food. Meds.
2) Blazeaid (https://blazeaid.com.au/)
A volunteer-based organisation that works with families and individuals in rural Australia after natural disasters such as fires and floods. BlazeAid volunteers work in a disaster-affected area for many months, not only helping individuals and families, but also helping rebuild the local communities. It relies entirely on donations and does not receive any direct government funding.
$40 general entry
We have a number of higher priced tickets so you can choose what level of support you can give this event. Any tickets purchased above the standard $40 general entry will receive a bonus of 5 raffle tickets and a treat from our baked goods stall, as a little thank you from us to you! There is also the option to 'donate' a ticket if you can't make it but still want to support us.
If you're unable to commit to the $40 ticket price, we understand ❤️. Please PM us for a discount code, no explanation needed. All support is welcome and we want this event to be an inclusive and non-judgemental space.
Lastly.... THANK YOU! Without each and every one of you supporting this cause, and our efforts, we would not be able to achieve anything.
Together, we can MAKE IT RAIN!!! ♥
